      The passengers on the Costa Alegra ship are having to spend a further 12 hours on the ship that has now power because of a row of whom will tow the boat into port.

      Sky News

      This is absolutely shocking to be honest, I mean haven't the passengers been through enough without having to wait for a row to be cleared up about who tows it in?

      well, at least they're safe, 12 hours more is OK when you're out of a danger.

      That is true :) from what I understand the ship had docked at sometime this morning so it seems it didn't take as long for them to resolve their row.

      it is weird that something like this happened to two ships of the same company in the first 2 months of this year.

      I agree it is too much of a coincidence to be honest and does make you wonder, I had to look twice myself after seeing it on Sky News to make sure I did see Costa.

      what if the company staged second incident so they can prove to the world they know how to handle an emergency?

      could be...:nerd:

      You do have a good point I think, I mean they did fail with the first incident so to speak so maybe this was to prove that they could succeed but they still put their passengers in danger if that was the case.

      that was exactly my point.
      but it is kinda sad that we satisfy with not getting killed...
