Deal Klaxon: 30% off a cruise - but only if you've just been rescued from that other one
They’re still recovering bodies from the wreck of the Costa Concordia but for those survivors who have been accounted for, the great news is that they’re being offered a 30% discount off the price of a future cruise.
Yes, it might sound like a crass, tasteless piece of news, almost worthy of Ryanair, but it’s true. Passengers are also reportedly being called by Costa Cruises and asked if they are suffering from flashbacks and nightmares. Additionally, passengers are being told how they can claim compensation for missing valuables as well as a full refund, in what could be seen to be an attempt to stave off larger lawsuits at a later date.
If you’d been on the Costa Concordia, would you travel with the company again? Or would you take them up on their offer, regarding yourself as disaster-proof under the ‘lightning doesn’t strike twice’ rule? Tough one…
