I had heard about the Allure but not the Legend. Neither one is really acceptable. I am never comfortable walking under the lifeboats and do spend time looking upward.

I understand with the Allure they were given permission to leave because the ship was not sailing full and they would have had enough seating capacity without that particular lifeboat.

I do believe they need to do more inspections and this shows the need.

As for leaving with the permission of the Bahamian government, somehow I think the U.S. authorities had a say in it too. But as long as they are registered in another country that is who has the final word.
Dec. 13 - Windstar sailing yacht. Wonderful!!
