    Think bigger HiJack the rescue tugs then tow it

    Although I joke, I do feel for all onboard. That many people I hope they have power for basic's A/C or Heat food. fridges. water etc if not would not be nice place to be....

    One or 2 causing problems could make life hell...

    2 Blokes in a pub.

    One says 'I work for Cunard'.

    Other one says 'Well I keep fairly busy too'.

    What? You bought her a ticket, or are you going as well?

    Not a Costa ship, but back in 2010 the Carnival Splendor suffered total propulsion failure due to one engine/generator failure (out of six). I don't know if this Costa ship has the same arrangement of engines and electric propulsion.

    I'm off on a cruise next week to the Red Sea. What should I pack in my survival pack? I already have of a life raft and a primus stove on my list, can anyone think of any other vital kit?
