Each and every day thousands of men and women from every corner of the world, wake up away from their families and loved ones . They are chefs, waiters, stewards,dancers, photographers, officers,deck hands, beauty therapists and engineers and it is they who provide the vacation that millions of cruise ship and ocean liner passengers crave each and every year.

Three of these crew didn’t wake up as they always do, ready and willing to work hard for the passengers of the Costa Europa .

They tragically died during a docking incident when the ship hit the pier while docking at the Red Sea port of Sharm El Sheik early this morning.

Every crew member on every ship grieves for them today.

Hi, I’m John, and this is my blog. So please don’t mistake my opinions — or those of my dear friends, fans or commenters — for those of Carnival Cruise Line or Carnival Corporation. My apologies in advance for anything I may say that upsets you, but this disclaimer covers Carnival and puts the blame directly on me………….. bugger.
