I am guessing that the Captain was thinking....

that since the US Coast Guard, US Homeland Security, FBI and all the local police agencies showed up for this....

(in the 3 or 4 hours that he had to make this decision) ...

that he had better err on the side of caution.

Especially since there was a credible terrorist threat against a cruise ship just one month prior to this.

I am sure that err made by the Costa Captain was weighing on his mind as well.

One wrong decision and 1,000's die. Sorry, I will never question a man that is put in that position.

If it is Carnival and it floats....we have sailed it!

Hubby ... DIAMOND (every ship except the Carnivale)
Me ... DIAMOND (every ship starting with the Tropicale)
20 year old son ... DIAMOND (every ship starting with the Tropicale...he is the only DOUBLE Milestone under the age of 21)
24 year old son ... DIAMOND
