Btw, Costa is owned by Carnival. Obviously.

Carnival Freedom Fire- 2010
Carnival Sensation Bomb- 2010

Carnival Splendor Fire- 11/2010

Notice many ships are repeat offenders. Also, I am not surprised at all the bomb threats considering how many disgruntled
former passengers there must be.
Additionally, a yahoo search of "carnival cruise accidents" returned countless links to every type of imaginable accident. I never realized there are so many accidents, but no doubt they are hushed up as much as possible. All I know, is I will stay away from Carnival. They seem to have little regard for their passengers.
