You know - there are two issues here - cause and effect. Cause is what the master did and it appears even Carnival Corp is admitting the master did many things wrong.
Effect to because of what the master did and the resulting chaos and deaths.
It's important to remember that and stop blaming the crew who WERE FOLLOWING ORDERS. Crew/hotel staff on each and every cruise ship are given the same basic information. This is your job during an emergency and you wait for orders. Waiting for orders is what they do day in and day out for the regular duties. They are not told you may or will have to make decisions in an emergency - they are told you go here - you do this and wait until told differently.
Why is everyone suddenly expecting them to make decisions they've been told they can't while waiting for decisions from a coward and the rest of the officers who have already deserted.
