    letters | The carnival triumph’s ordeal

    Could stricken boat have handled an evacuation at sea?

    AFTER SEVERAL days of watching the explanations for the trials aboard the cruise ship, the inability of authorities to airlift food to the vessel, and the more than four-hour debarkation procedure at the destination port, I am concerned about what would have happened to the 4,000 souls aboard if a major fire had required abandoning the vessel at sea.
