How awful for the crew who may have had to deal with this tradegy to have to go back to work, business as usual.
I was thinking exactly this when I saw that photo posted of the lobby. What a thing to have happen, especially in front of numerous people.
We boarded Victory the day after a child had drowned in the main pool on the previous cruise. The deejay above the pool was the first one to spot the child and was first on the scene. To Carnival's credit, he was given the next three days off.
Larking around happens and accidents happen, my sympathies go out to the parents. I just hope that this doesn’t result in some knee jerk over-reaction to raise every railing by 12 inches and put safety catch nets in every atrium. You cannot make everything in the world absolutely safe.
No, but I've noticed a move away from towering high atriums in more recently built hotels, as well as on Vista (and soon, Horizon). Some of this shift is due to engineering and climate-control issues, but I think some is also due to liability concerns.
