are all carnival captains and ahip officer italians?
are all carnival captains and ahip officer italians?Yes and I think its because of that Greek Capt. and crew who left the ship in the middle of the night as it was sinking but forgot to tell the passergers.
All of the Captains in Carnival's current fleet are Italian as are their subordinate officers involved in the sailing of the vessel...Unfortunately, I can't remember where I read it so I can't give an exact citation, however, Arison was used to working with Italian Captains in his pre-Carnival days.
I don't know the reason for this but I suspect it could be associated with the construction of the ships themselves. With the exception of the four Spirit class ships, all of the Carnival fleet was built in Italy.
