    Pictures did look terrible , tragic ,rescue team hopes that a few were able to swim to the Island but it doesn't look good . Makes you wonder how many listened to the safety talk if there was one . I understood it to be a 3 day trip from early reports . 5 rescued 34 missing . Hope they find what went wrong and the families involved get to at least have some closure . Tragic !

    Sounds like only the crew escaped. All lost were passengers asleep below deck.

    So sad. My heart goes out to all the families and friends.
