With both Costa and Carnival as a whole stepping away from him and getting on the side of the prosecution as an injured party we shall see. Also with Costa ships being Italian flagged, there is a certain level of national pride here as well that I am sure will be addressed in court. Combine that with so many cruiselines having Italian officers, the Italian courts might go for the extreme to "prove a point" that they take such things very seriously.

Past cruises:

Disney Dream - Dec 2013 4n Bahamas
Disney Dream - Dec 2012 4n Bahamas
Carnival Imagination - Dec 2011 4n Western
Carnival Imagination - Nov 2010 4n Western
Costa Atlantica - Dec 2009 7n Eastern
