On Friday, January 13, 2012, around 9:40 p.m. local time, the Costa Concordia, a luxury cruise ship carrying 4,200 passengers, punctured its hull off the coast of Italy. What followed the collision was a chaotic evacuation, irresponsible actions from the ship’s captain, and a lack of communication from the parent company, Carnival, all leading to a public relations disaster. 14 pp. Case # 12-05 (2012).
