I have heard the advanced sales are going very well. This will be the second week in a row that there is a release that smaller children should be able to watch without their parents worrying. I wonder why they chose to be the week just before Indiana Jones. I suspect people will be willing to pay for both, because the reviews indicate the quality is excellent. This is great for movie fans.

Is the crown princess cruise ship safe?

I have yet to see a single word about how the ship was ballasted. Ships don't heel 24 degrees unless there is structural damage below decks or the ship is improperly ballasted. I can't believe there have been no comments (none that i've seen anyway) from naval architects or engineers weighing in on this issue. Halsey's typhoon during 1944 (WWII) had naval warship being forcibly listed by the action of weather and water up to 58 degrees without capsizing. Why has ntsb said nothing about ballasting. Thanks
