    This is why i'm never going on Cruise ! A huge 13 Deck, 4,000 people Cruise Ship has sunk !

    Reminds me of the Titanic & it's weird how it's 100 years since the Titanic sunk !

    I must admit, the whole cruise idea has never really appealed to me. My brother in laws mother goes on 2 cruises a year and she loves them.

    Those poor passengers must have been panic stricken, what a nightmare.

    Wow - that is awful. Can't believe it's nearly a whole 100 years from Titanic as well!

    Crusies are amazing though! Don't know how the captain didn't see the rocks!
    It just reminded me of the Titanic as well though, except in went in sideways and didn't break in the middle. Poor passengers :/ 3 died :( RIP

    Yeah i just heard that - but i've also heard atleast 70 missing.
    They were lucky they were near the shore - if they'd been further out i imagine it would have been far far worse ....

    Don't understand how the Captain didn't see the huge rock - there's a pic of it smashed into the Ship

    How scary for those on board. I am fascinated by the titanic, well ship wrecks in general. (as grim as it sounds)

    I hope the missing are found safe.

    How frightening it must have been for those onboard. My heart goes out to them all and also to those families with people still missing.

    RIP to those lost x

    Such a horrible thing to happen, I can't image how they must have felt trying to save themselves as the lifeboats were useless.
