Wow. Apparently he changed the course so he could cruise past the shore and honk the horn for a retired officer that lived on the water there, and also to impress the family of one of his crew. So it's because of showboating this happens... And then he hails a taxi while there are still passengers missing and in the water.

This is one of the biggest displays of cowardice and stupidity I can ever remember seeing in my life.

The changing of course should not have been an issue unless its uncharted waters. Even my $500 GPS shows a map and the depth of the water around me and shows my location. So I can look at the depth of the water miles in front of me.

That retired officer is pretty pissed that he's been thrown into the middle of all this

Agreed. I have no idea how someone so irresponsible could be placed in such a position. What a little bitch. And the story as read here says that it was done as a favor to the head waiter who had family staying on the island it passed by. The captain is gonna be paying for this disaster for the rest of his life.

Yeah I mean I'm sure they have state of the art equipment on those ships. The fact that that rock ripped a 160 foot hole in the boat and the captain waited an hour to even report it?? WTF??

This is so tragic. And scary too, considering I'll be on a cruise in October.
