Carnival Cruises Offer 30% Discount For Costa Concordia Survivors, Waiting On Lawsuits

January 22, 2012

The owners of the Costa Concordia are offering survivors of the disaster a 30 per cent discount off future cruises as they battle to stave off law suits  expected to cost hundreds of millions of pounds.One British survivor of the disaster, which claimed 12 lives with 20 people still missing, branded the offer as “insulting”.

It was disclosed that in an attempt to help survivors the ship’s parent  company, Carnival, has been telephoning passengers daily asking if they are  suffering nightmares or sleepless nights.

But that move also appeared to backfire when a psychologist said such questioning could trigger post traumatic stress rather than relieve it.

Carnival Cruises, what were they thinking? Survivors lawyering up.  Carnival getting ready for the next wave..
