S.O.S. Spirit of Survival is a one-of-a-kind story of the incredible fortitude that ordinary people can conjure in order to overcome even the most harrowing of disasters. Told from the point of view of each of the five members of one family, this book offers a unique and detailed look into the truth behind the headlines surrounding the Carnival Cruise Line's Costa Concordia cruise ship sinking off the coast of Isola del Giglio, Tuscany in January of 2012. Their astounding account of the tragic events before, during and, perhaps most shockingly, after the enormous cruise ship ran aground are sure to amaze readers. This book not only gives a voice to all that were aboard the Costa Concordia, but also explains clearly the history and current importance of updated maritime safety regulations. As life-long and experienced cruisers, the authors show that knowledge and preparedness are the keys to safety on cruise ships. Being a prepared and informed passenger is a safeguard against becoming a casualty – both physically and financially. However, the true messages of this book are hope and profound inspiration, as this family's bond deepens and strengthens through their ultimate survival journey.
