I agree!

I doesn't look like that lady in the foreground has ANY sunscreen on!

So wrong...so wrong....






Seriously, that is a shocking picture. What an unnecessary tragedy.

Hard to believe it's coming up on this tragedy's one year anniversary,and the ship is still there.

To me, this would be like having a picnic in a cemetery...just a lack of respect. I know, I know, some cultures do just that but ........

I agree with you trip, I wonder what they plan to do with it and when. I'm surprised that it's still just laying there like that and why something hasn't been done by now.

What do you do when some idiot crashes his cruise ship at your favorite spot?

While I agree it seems insensitive, people have been living, visiting and sunning at that spot for generations. It is the ship that does not belong there.

Sadly, it was a fellow Italian who put it there.

It's common to lay on the hard rocks, vs the shore? Guess it's just me then.

Yep, that pic sure seems odd and in bad taste.....So, when will they remove the ship, I thought there were plans for it months ago?

I thought the same thing, Donna. I remember months ago reading an article or something where in once they had removed the fuel, they were going to tow it some place where it was to be broken up instead of repaired. I also am under the impression the fuel is now long gone yet the ship remains in its present location.

I'm just guessing but it could still be there as a result of litigation which could continue for years. Let's hope not.
