The 83,000 ton "Oosterdam"
The day after the recent accident of the Costa Concordia, I saw the Oosterdam perform a life boat drill.
In fifteen years of going down to the docks, it was the first time I had seen a drill.
Though there were a lot of passengers in lines ready to board this morning, one wonders how safe these huge ships really are.
