Just when you thought the world had perhaps moved on from that dreadful cruise ship grounding in Italy, the Costa Concordia is again popping up as the trial starts next month. This time it’s not the ship that’s the focus so much as the ship’s dancer who was keeping the captain company on the bridge when the incident occurred.
If you can remember back, there were reports that Captain Schettino had welcomed Moldovian dancer, Domnica Cemortan, into the control room of the ship with hopes of wowing her. Since we weren’t there we have no clue what actually happened, but we all know the outcome. Now, Cemortan is suing not only the Costa Cruises, but the captain himself and the media for smearing her angelic reputation.
