Sandeep Berry of Evanston describes the past several days on the sewage-soaked Carnival cruise ship Triumph
A Minnesota family with ties to the northwest suburbs has issued what it calls “the final update” on its blog – about their parents who died on the Costa Concordia cruise ship three months ago.
A Minnesota couple with ties to the Chicago area is still missing after the shipwreck of the Costa Concordia off the coast of Italy.
The cruise ship disaster off the coast of Italy, that does it for me. I’ve often thought it might be fun to go on a cruise, but I know now I’ll never do it, never ever get onto one of those boats.
Jim and Jo Salzurg and their daughter, Mary-Jo, were among the thousands of passengers on the Costa Concordia, the luxury liner that hit a rock along the Tuscany shore last week.
The American Embassy in Rome now says 118 of the 120 Americans aboard the Costa Concordia have been accounted for, but a Minnesota couple with ties to the Chicago area is still missing.
This winter’s unusually mild weather has been both a blessing and a curse, depending on what type of business you happen to run.
