I don't think Carnival will get involved if they can help it. I think they'll leave it to Costa, as much as they can to sort it out themselves. I do agree though - I think those sueing for $76.6 million a head are pretty far separated from reality. I don't think they're going to get very far with their Case in Florida instead of Italy either.

I'm not sure why you're making the distinction between the people who got on in Civitaveccia ( where I got on ), and those who got on earlier. everyone else at least got a bit of a cruise in before this happened.

To answer your question however, I'm not sure if the 11k they're offering, addresses the recklessness, and neglect that led to this incident. This wasn't some unavoidable, or unpredictable event. The Captain, and Costa as people responsible for putting that Captain there, put lives at risk, including mine ( I was sleeping 10 minutes before this happened ), to show off to an old friend.
