It doesn't say in description, but that would be my guess. It repeats at 10:00 CST so I'm going to record it then. Don't want to miss the Texas Ranger game!!

Who besides me found this to be extremely slanted against Carnival? I know that Costa is owned by Carnival Corp. But it was a Costa ship NOT a Carnival ship. I also noticed that they put a ship on the screen and it was always a Carnival ship. Who could mistake the iconic funnel? Once I noted the ship was the Carnival Valor. I just found this program to be so against cruising in general and Carnival in particular.

Interesting show. Looks like a lot of mistakes were made. They showed a lot of Carnival ships because they are the parent company of Costa. I also saw some Royal Caribbean ships. Majesty of the Seas was one. What I did find disturbing is that the show really slammed the larger ships. Looks like what happened on the Concordia was due to a lack of training and the failure to follow the maritime and CLIA standards and rules. Tremendous loss of life. Also the corporate attitude to me was reprehensible. Their responses seemed very flippant.

, Laura. The captain of a Carnival-owned cruise ship drove it on to rocks, sunk it, and killed people. What kind of positive spin can you put on the facts? Is telling the truth now "biased"?
