Social Media Storm
Ten days ago, the Costa Fascinosa was hit by 90 knot winds after the cruise ship left Venice.
The cruise ship listed heavily and plates and glasses crashed to the decks and floors throughout the galleys and bars on the ship. Passengers experienced widespread panic. A Filipino pastry chef working aboard the Fascinosa posted his accounts of the storm on Facebook and included photographs and video of considerable damage in the galley where he worked. It is understood that Costa terminated the pastry chef's employment for mentioning the incident on Facebook. The cruise company's conduct has been slammed online.
