Princess Cruises: Captain Wasn’t Notified of Distressed Boat

Last week I blogged about the two fisherman that perished at sea after a passing Princess Cruise liner failed to render assistance. Princess Cruises has come out with a statement:

The Princess Cruise’s captain being accused of turning his back on fellow mariners in distress says that neither him nor the officer on watch were ever notified of the distressed fisherman and the accusations have “devastated” him.

This is actually pretty plausible – according to the original story, some passengers noticed the people on the boats waving their arms and told the nearest crew members. I’m sure the crew members told were wait staff or in some other hospitality role – it’s entirely possible that word never made it past those employees.
