I always put into perspective the number of cruise ships that are out and about on any given day, 365 days a year and the number of "emergencies" they probably encounter ... not their first rodeo ...
It is interesting to think about all the ships at sea, cruise, freighters, military, from a multitude of countries, and also the private boats, and there are hardly any incidents of note out there.
