image for Italian cruise ship owners question captain's judgment on CD choice

The captain of the cruise ship that capsized off Tuscany has been accused by his company of taking an unauthorized diversion that led to the crash.

Pier Luigi Luigi, the chairman of Cost-A-Concorde, laid the blame for the tragedy at the feet of captain Francesco Francesco for deviating from standard procedures and taking a Celine Dion CD on board the ship.

"This sort of behavior is extremely frowned upon in the industry - just like mentioning the 'Scottish play' in the theatre".

One passenger has accused the captain of drinking in one of the ship's bars on the night the vessel ran aground.

Monique Monique, 41, from the Netherlands, said: 'What scandalised me most was when I saw the captain in the bar romancing a beautiful lady singing 'Near far, wherever you are I believe that the heart does go on'
