Thanks Heiwa for your excellent nautical knowledge and ability to explain things in laymen's terms!
What worries me is that this thread drifts or seems to be sailing into the direction of completely denying that the whole event happened. I mean, 2 people have seen the ship resting at it's place with their OWN eyes.
I think we cannot say from fotos only that the victims have not been there at that night or the ship was empty, the captain does not exist or is only an actor etc etc....On a foto, things can appear distorted, even only slightly, although i agree that there seems to be a probl with the port if one looks at the houses.
How do you imagine would they stage this whole event? This is much to complicated and "unsafe" as it would involve too many people who have to keep their mouths shut. Heiwa, Simon, did you speak to the locals and did they confirm that no castaways were at the port during this night? Or do you think the locals are all in on the game and were/are still "playing" their part? Somehow the "eventmasters" have to make sure that nobody talks, not now and not later.
What i find very strange still is that there seems to be no foto/vid available from that moment then the ship rolled over, only just sort of the before and after fotos. Also i don't believe that the voice recorder is broken. That the captain is the only one to blame is also rubbish in my opinion and sheds a bad light on the company. Obviously it was general practise to bring the big ships too close to shore to show them off. Sad really and this should be abolished and everyone high up in the company ordering and knowing about this practise should be fired and being made responsible for their actions in court.
To completely deny that the event happened is hurtful to the true victims and keeps us from truly reflecting on the real issues there are with the cruise industry.
