Default Concordia Mob drugs on board??

I see that there are reports that the Mafia had a 'huge shipment of drugs' on board Concordia during her fatal voyage, and that cruise ships are regulalry used to ship drugs between Eurpean & American shores.

Costa Concordia: Shipment of Mob drugs was hidden aboard cruise liner when it hit rocks off Italian coast, investigators say - Europe - World - The Independent

Glad I wasn't the one who had to break the news to the Boss.

Alan.

I'm not familiar with the source. They make a connection with Trans Atlantic cruise but Concordia wasn't going to leave the Med, was it?

Though if customs inspections are toughest before crossing the ocean, the best way to beat it might be to already be on board.
