The captain, chief mate, second mate, third mate, chief cabin steward, and housekeeper of the Greek-flagged vessel were arrested after the accident, a Merchant Marine Ministry spokeswoman said earlier Saturday. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Can someone tell me why the Chief cabin steward, and the Housekeeper have anything to do with the sinking of the Sea Diamond?
Also I read, that there were complaints from passengers about, having to go down steep ladders, to waiting boats, for rescue. While I would be scared beyond belief, the alternative, is much more unpleasant!
Trip, with her book & tea!

The prosecution might just be throwing a lot of things against the wall to see what sticks.
Also, the Cabin Steward might have been responsible for the lifeboat stations and that was a mess. He also might be held accountable for not checking the cabin that the two missing passengers might still be in.
The housekeeper might have had items in the corridors blocking egress.
Cruised more times than I can remember.

Pretty scary stuff! Local news has been reporting about a group of Montreal High School students and staff chaperones who were onboard this cruise ship as part of a school trip to Europe. Everyone escaped safely, but I'm sure they won't ever want to cruise again!
That was the Oceanos, the repeat of that show was just on tv....The Captain, was on the first life boats off the ship, I believe.
Is this a true story or just a movie on TV? I never heard of this ship the Oceanos.
BTW, I think the housekeeper and company was charged b/c there was an issue of not enough life vests onboard. I believe the mgrs probably had to sign off stating that there was adequate life vests before being allowed to start the cruise.
I wonder how the employees of Carnival, RCCL or NCL would react under the same situation? I would love to believe they would be upstanding examples of excellent training but I wonder
