    What I don't understand, and must have missed is, how did they run out of food? I would think a huge shipped would have a packed pantry full of non perishables.
    I thought about this too, sprynkles...mass market cruise lines are notorious for using canned foods instead of fresh because they are cheaper. I don't know why they ran out.

    Perhaps they were only carrying what they thought they required until they made berth and would then restock cheaply there. That and perhaps there was a certain amount of hoarding going on by some crew members when it became obvious that they were in trouble. The people with the keys to the stores are always going to be the last ones to go hungry...
