I did watch this show last night before the grammy's were on. I was just amazed at the lack of information provided to the passengers, even down right avoiding the truth for too long of a time. IF they had deployed the lifeboats earlier, they could of easily got more people off the ship. Very well video'd story with a personal touch...It was bad enough that they went off course and hit the bottom, but from after that point, they could of saved a lot of lives by reacting right away and informing passengers to to go their muster station and get off the ship. Many were so luck, it was close enough to land and could swim.

Ok, this was not the show I spoke of last week, so that is yet to come. It's easy in the calm of out home, thinking what we would do, but to hear that some people continued eating, boggled my mind. Listing at 20 degrees I would be on deck, with a life jacket, I don't care what the crew said.

Just that fact that the death count was so low,is amazing. Lots of brave people that night, just not the Captain.

I watched the show it looked like total chaos to me. I dont understand why they kept everyone in the dark for so long? I would hope it was an isolated case. Even the passengers were being rude no organization at all.Makes you wonder if that is the way it would be anytime something happens
