Cruise ships anyone?

I'm sure many of you have now seen some of the footage of the grounding of the Costa Concordia cruise ship which occurred last night. At last count there are between 6-8 persons killed, and my heart goes out to their families.

My question to all is: Have you ever been on a cruise ship when an emergency took place? Care to tell us about it?

My wife and I were on a cruise to the Bahamas with 3 other couples and the ship stopped at one of those private islands. Just as we were about to depart, we were sitting in the upper rear lounge (big round thing by the smoke stacks) and had a view of the ship and island, sipping on some tropical drink of some sort. There was a gentlemen who suffered a heart attack on the island and died. We sat there for a couple hours and waited for a Helli-copter to come and evac him. Kinda of sobering to a fun filled day watching the copter land and then take off. We've been on 3 cruises and have enjoyed everyone. Looking forward to number 4.
