The Washington Post reported that Costa Cruise Lines, which operated the Costa Concordia that ran aground last week off the coast of Italy, is offering survivors a 30 percent discount on future cruises.
According to London’s Telegraph newspaper:
“A spokesman for Costa Cruises said: ‘The company is trying to do everything they can for those passengers directly affected.
“‘The company is not only going to refund everybody but they will offer a 30 per cent discount on future cruises if they want to stay loyal to the company.'”
In addition to offering Costa survivors a refund and discount, Carnival, the cruise liner’s parent company, has been calling victims, asking them if they’re suffering from nightmares and sleeplessness.
