Just wanted to provide an update to anyone who might be wondering that both Andrea Davis and my moms are alright. Andrea was onboard at the time but has made it home. I talked with her via email today.
My moms were supposed to board in Savona on 1/14. Some news outlets have been mis-reporting the actual course of the ship...she had left Civitavecchia enroute to Savona (not the other way around) and my mom and mom-in-law were in Italy and would have boarded that day. They changed their flight and returned home on Monday.
