The latest reports are 3 dead and up to 70 missing. How terribly sad.

They had not held the lifeboat drills either. That was scheduled for day 2. Something that isn't allowed on this side of the pond. This certainly shows why.

A minor correction - this incident took place on the SIXTH day of the cruise.

The problem is the Costa ships pick up at a lot of ports yet the drill is only held once a week. Therefore, if you are picked up at the second port it will be 6 days before the next drill. In this case, a lot of passengers had been picked up that day and a drill was scheduled for the next day - hence they are saying day 2.
