Default the OCEANOS disaster

My wife and I just watched the National Geographic Channel's "Cruise Ship Rescue" on the OCEANOS disaster. It's criminal that the some of the ship's Officer's and some crew got off before any of the passangers knew there was a problem. I think that any of the crew that got off the ship before all of the the passangers should be prosecuted to the fullust extent of the law. The Captain did not go on the lifeboats but as soon as the rescue copters came he was the first one to be airlifted off the ship. Any Captain who is not the last person off a sinking ship should have his license revoked for ever and never work on the sea again. The Captain said he left when he did so he could cooridnate the rescue from shore. That's bull!!

The Greek authorities have effectively dealt some heavy disciplinary action against
the entire crew of that ship, after all was said, done and investigated.....took a fair
bit of doing, though., among others, the fact the incident was not in Greek waters,thus necessitating '' protocol authority '' to deal with this after other '' governing bodies''.

When I saw that doc last year, I too was totally stunned with the events....

My travel agent was aboard that sailing and was one of the last passengers to be rescued. I'm amazed she still recommends cruising! (I've just returned from a brilliant Mediterranean cruise aboard the "MIllennium".) If it had not been for the cruise director, Robin Boltman and his staff keeping up the spirits of the passengers, as well as the brilliant efforts of the South African Air Force many lives might have been lost. As it was everyone was rescued. A true seafaring miracle!

I also saw the National Geographic Channel's "Cruise Ship Rescue" on the OCEANOS.

I was happy to read this thread for the follow-up story regarding the captain and crew.

Good riddance!

At the end of the documentary, they stated the Captain is still working and is the Captain of I believe a ferry somewhere in that part of the world. Don't think they got rid of him completely.
