Default Cruise Ship Accident - Port Canaveral

Has anyone heard about this? I just found it on the web. The Crown Princess listed heavily after leaving port.

My sons girlfriend was on this ship, and called him in afternoon hysterical, and told him what happened, and that they kept announcing on the intercomb if you are mmissing a family member please repot to a certain place. She watched a child being thown out of the pool, and taken out by ambulance.

She had also called two hours before this to tell him how boring it was for her age group of 18, she was totally bored, she stated you have to be 17 and younger for kid stuff, and 21 and older to be an adult. She waited for one year for this trip and hated it.

They are all getting a full refund, and flying out today at ships expense and offered hotel accomations to anyone that did not want to stay on board last night, they kept everyone informed constantly of what was happening so hats off to Princess. Good for them.

I saw this on the news this morning when I was a the gym. Something about steering problems that caused the ship to roll sharply to the left.

Life is too short to let the ship of your dreams sail without you.

I heard about the incident this morning. We got back from Port Canaveral on Saturday.

Here's another article, this on from ABC.
