    What happened to the Captain?

    Just watched "Amazing Videos" where they showed the Cruise Ship sinking & the Captain and crew had quickly abandoned ship - saving themselves & leaving the passengers & Entertainment group to fend for themselves.

    The Entertainment group helped several passengers off in lifeboats - ship leaned too much to lower anymore lifeboats - the guitarist managed to operate the ship's radio (apparently the captain hadn't even radioed for help) and called for rescue.

    A helicopter came to their aid & two of the entertainment guys helped everyone else into the helicopters rescue harness & when everyone else was off - they were the last two to be lifted off just moments before the ship turned up and sank all the way down.

    Really was an amazing video to watch.

    Anyway - I'd like to know the rest of the story - what happened to the captain and crew after that? Is he (are they) still employed and working on another ship or did they get jailed, fined, disbarred or what??

    Anyone here know? Thanks....

    I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend. (Thomas Jefferson)

    Captain Avranas, meanwhile, was unapologetic, saying he left early to help direct the rescue. "When I give the order abandon ship, it doesn't matter what time I leave," he said. "If some people want to stay, they can stay."
    I was directing the rescue from the safety of my lifeboat where I could better assess the situation.IMHO they should of hanged him,to leave a ship full of passengers with no knowledge of how to operate lifeboats etc. is criminal

    I worked with a Greek guy and I learned engatalipta tu pleo (or something like that) is how you say "abandon ship" in Greek. This happened back in the early to mid 90's, I ribbed him with that saying every time I passed him in the hall
