Sorry Trip; I must have missed that in your PM. I would consider this my first cruise ever. I don't really count the Concordia since it was only for a few hours most of which I was asleep for.

Yeah, that was just to tide over until I got to the next port. I made use of a medical disembarkation, and the resulting proximity to Almaria to get on to the Spanish Vodafone network, to keep me...

I don't think Carnival will get involved if they can help it. I think they'll leave it to Costa, as much as they can to sort it out themselves. I do agree though - I think those sueing for $76.6...

I think the true Concordia heros will probably never come to the limelight, and among the 1000 crew on board, there were certainly many of them.

I'll leave that to the Americans. I live in Europe, and I've only ever seen a ride-on lawnmower a couple of times.
