According to that report he said "At that moment, I went up to the deck and ordered the ship to be put on manual navigation and I didn't have command, that's to say being in charge of sailing the ship, that was the officer."
Which in my mind roughly translates as "While approaching unusually closely to the shore I told the crew to switch to manual, then wandered off and left them to it, so it wasn't my fault."

I assume that the Lloyds List PR department would have also invited all the families & friends of the lost souls to the presentation, which would be followed up by a special screening of Titanic 3D, prior to sending them home with a limited edition T-Shirt and complimentary goody bag.

What a joke
the boat sunk very slowly 27 people or there abouts die and they get an awarde . This show morden socity reward for failer. Everone should have walked away from that sinking alive. OK some members of the crew did go a good job but as a WHOLE they fail because people were killed. If it was like the Hearld were she sank in 30 sec then thats a diffrent story.

Sounds a bit like police at Hillsbourgh getting compensation for the stress of the day while the victims receive not a penny piece.

I think the crew deserve the award, in any emergancy situation onboard a ship there is always going to be a small percentage of crew members that panic, but people forget about the crew that dont panic and do there jobs and save lifes, the crew that did there jobs properly and saved people deserve this and should be recognized for it. Its always a thought for people who work on passengers ships how a proper evacuation would happen in a real emergancy,noboby knows how people will reactate, people who dissagree with things like this are the ones who dont or have never worked on ships.

I don't have an issue with recognising the efforts of 'the crew that did their jobs properly and saved lives' and realise that, despite being trained for such an event, other factors will almost inevitably come into play should the worst happen.

However, as the ship was sailing in the wrong place; it was effectively Captain-less at the time of the accident; and we are led to believe that organisation was lacking with a percentage of that crew did 'panic'.

For the sake of everyone involved in the tragedy, don't you think that, for example, personalised letters of commendation to ALL those assisting the rescue would have been more appropriate, than a public award for Seafaring?

I can't see anything wrong with a public acknowledgement for those specific crew members  that actually did well.

It's part of the crew's job, especially on a passanger ship, to deal with emergencies in a responsible manner, and certainly appreciation should be shown to those that managed their duty and more.
The employers who, simply for the sake of a few dollars, euros, rubles or whatever put what effectively were incompetent people, and to a degree that goes as far up as the master, onboard, should also be to blame - back to the old corporate responsibility again. No doubt the haranguing of the master will make a suitable smokescreen for them.

Costa Concordia: 'Stupid' Tourists Rescued

http://news.sky.com/story/1034333/costa-concordia-stupid-tourists-rescued
Coastguards have criticised five German cruise ship passengers who hired an inflatable boat to get a close-up look of the wrecked Costa Concordia liner.

The group, including two children, had to be rescued after their tiny boat was swamped by waves, whipped up by storm force winds. All were suffering from the effects of the cold.

Officials said the party were holidaymakers from the Costa Magica, a cruise liner from the same Costa Cruises fleet as the ill-fated Concordia, which struck rocks last year leaving 32 people dead off the Italian island of Giglio.

The Germans had arrived at Civitavecchia and made their way to Porto Santo Stefano where they hired the boat so they could take a look at the stricken Concordia which is still lying on rocks just outside the entrance to Giglio harbour.

Although they managed to sail the 10 miles from Porto Santo Stefano without any problem, on the return leg the weather suddenly changed and the boat got into difficulties.

But it managed to stay afloat and they were picked up by a coastguard vessel which took them back to the mainland.

Just watched the One Year On programme, there didn't seem to be much more than there was last year, save a couple of new audio recordings and a few graphics on the salvage operation. Only the last 10 minutes or so seemed to be new stuff.

According a Yahoo News article, plans are being made to salvage the wreck between June and September.
