Good point. If a Captain cannot respond to a complaint about an entertainer, how do you expect him to competently drive a ship?

Oh, wait a minute. The Captain is not in charge of the entertainment Department. That would be the Hotel Manager. They set it up this way so that the Captain could concentrate on steering the vessel safely while his officers handled the day to day operation of the Hotel.

Could it be that the Captain in charge of Costa Concordia was busy answering passenger complaints rather than safely steering the ship?

Now, I do agree we need to rethink evacuation procedures - to account for situations where the ship is listing badly. The whole premise of evacuation now is that it must be done from an upright position.

As to whether cruise lines know where all of their ships are at any given moment - I think they have the ability to see that - but to assume there is someone on land watching every captain and reviewing charts fulltime to see if he is about to hit rocks is a bit over-reaching.
Awesome article Paul. I will tweet it around.

Default Cruise Ship Saftety

I would also like to see small computer screens throughout the ship, in the casino, coffee shop, outside of dining room, library, etc, with an ongoing eye catching program of what to do in an emergency. Something subltle but would make it interesting enough that you would watch it for a few minutes.

>>Making Cruising Safer

The most accidents with people happens in there own houses/apartments.
It MUCH more risky to sit in your own apartment/house as to take
Cruise on any modern ship
