It is not a wildly risky prediction to say that we have
a maritime disaster somewhere in our future;
Cruise ships are getting ever larger and carrying
ever larger numbers of passengers, more than could be
comfortably or efficiently removed from the ship in the
event of a fire or a sinking.
In January 2012, the U.S. Costa Concordia, with 4,252
people aboard, ran aground on a clearly visible island
off the coast of Italy, with the loss of 32 lives. Because of

barriers among the crew and passengers, the ship was ,
not abandoned in an orderly fashion, and th'e captain,
rather than stick with his ship as law and tradition de-
mand, left about an hour before most of his passengers.
Last February, a small fire that shouldhave easily .
been contained caused the Carnival Triumph to drift .
helplessly around the Gulf of Mexico for four days with-
out cooked food and without proper sewage disposal
in parts of the ship. The ship and its hungry and filthy
passengers were eventually towed ashore.
The size of these ships seems to exacerbate the prob-
