    I have seen many second-hand reports in many news organizations putting forth different details from the coroner's report, and of course drawing different conclusions. Those organizations' motives and methodologies are suspect -- after all, they are for-profit, and make more money when their reporting reaches more eyeballs.

    I have not seen any of them linking to the actual coroner's report. Is it publicly available? I would like to read it myself if at all possible.

    Does anyone know if they had a night watchman on this vessel considering the size and amount of people aboard?

    As I recall, the crew was asleep when the fire started. A crew member awoke to find the galley/lounge area fully involved.

    IIRC, they were supposed to have one, but he fell asleep.

    I no longer trust anyone in such risks, ever. I carry my own Smoke & CO alarm on any trip.

    Well, you asked for the report. Now read it and don’t just “skim through it”.

    Just finished reading all the coroner's reports. There is no doubt in my mind now that at least some of the victims dressed, grabbed some stuff and tried to get off the boat.
