[QUOTE/]
I was on the Wonder when we picked up Carnivals MOB.It didnt have anything to do with Carnival being unprepared.It had more to do with the way the Wonder came on to the scene, as we were closer.It was easier for us to pick him up then the Carnival.If Carnival had issues, it was more mechanical then incompetence/training. All ships, that depart US waters, must pass the same training standards from the US Coast Guard.They must also train a certain number of times of year, as part of the SOLAS regulations.[/QUOTE]

If I remember correctly some one on the Carnival ship mentioned that while they were watching them try and rescue the guy they couldn't get a lifeboat into the water. they said it got all tangled up in it's own ropes. And i only metioned it because they news people didn't only mention that disney rescued him but that carnival didn't rescue their own passenger.

Well can you really blame the Carnival passenger that went overboard. If I was on Carnival and I saw Disney go by I would jump overboard and HOPE Disney stoped to save me.

JUST KIDDING ALL YOU Carnival LOVERS!!!! No hard feelings!

I am glad they are safe. Now Disney will bill them $3,000 each for the cruise.

Theres several different versions Ive heard of from what happened from onboard the Sensation.

Ive heard everything from they sunk the rescue boat, to they tangled the lines ( which I cant see happening since they are steel, and they are in hauling blocks that keep them spearated)to the ship was moving when they tried to launch the boat.Ive even heard that they dumped the rescue boat upside down, and dropped their own crew in the water.
Ive also hear that the crew ran around with flash lights looking for the MOB, and that the searchlights on the Sensation werent working properly.

In a situation like that, rumors are a dime a dozen as the average person, doesnt have access to the decision making process, and doesnt know the whole story, or heard something that overtime gets changed, due to the number of people involved.Its like playing telephone.

As a comparison, there was a fire prior to the start of a World Series Baseball game, I think in Atlanta, a few years ago. The fire started in a enclosed suite, and the fire crews came in thru a back door, and were in the stadium, putting the fire out.Some of the burning debris, had fallen on to the stands below, and was burning for a few minutes, before and engine and truck come out on the field, and put out what was in the stand.

The news caster that was supposed to be broadcasting the pregame events went on for a while on how long it took for the FD to put out the fire in the stands, and that they werent there etc.He didnt know that they were already working, and that it takes a few minutes to get a engine into position, to get into the stadium to do there job.It takes longer if there is no one around and we have to "unlock" a gate ourselves.

Thats what happens when the uninformed make statements with out all of the facts.(Im not directing it at you)Those of us that do know, and saw and heard the comments first hand, were asking how long he was going to run his mouth, when we could see water coming out of the suite, and even one line lobbing water out from the suite,to the debris below.
Same thing with the Sensation. I wasnt on the bridge, and dont know what they did or didnt do.But from all news accounts, and the fact I was on deck 10 when I saw the Wonders boat pick up the MOB, less then 100 feet from the ship, we were closer.

I heard Carnival tried to pick them up but they said they'd rather wait for Disney. :-)

Geesh, some folks will do anything for a free cruise.

That was so mean.

I'm just glad that they all were safe. No one has asked this question though, What happened that these 18 people ended up in the water?

Silly question: Does rescueing all of these people slow your cruise down? Are you able to still go to all of your destinations and stay for the set amount of time or does it cut into your cruisetime.

For the most part no.Unless they spend an lot of time searching for someone, then you for the most part only have an interesting story to tell.If for some reason that the person they bring on board has to be medevaced off the ship, depending on where the ship is,it may impact the cruise as to coming into ports late, or even canceling a stop.It all depends on the location. In the Bahamas/Carribean,you probably wont notice it at all, since the stops are so close, snd the US is close enough that the CG can reach fairly quick.

No it doesn't make a difference on your cruise. My old boss was on a Disney cruise when the ship had to actually turn around during the night after leaving Port Canaveral because someone had died. They made it to the port the next day a little late, but not late enough to miss any shore excursions, but then to make it best for everyone they stayed in port a couple hours longer that day. They turned around because it was quicker then to wait for the Coast Guard to come out and remove the person, they probably pulled into Key West to do this and then immediately left.

We do not. But as of 11:30 am when I left work today this had not crossed the wires, or come in from our network..ABC (owned by Disney).

Just did a Google search, other than here, it is nowhere on the internet.
