Here are some clippings from the interviews made by various new sources of the survivors of Costa Concordia ship disaster.
Cruise Critic member Mickey63, who was onboard with her 12-year-old (via email): "We are all okay, shaken and bruised with no money cards or anything else, very frustrated that Costa is doing very little for us … They have currently put us up at the Hilton Garden Inn at the Rome Airport. We have contacted our embassy and they are supposedly coming tonight to help us. Costa has made lots of promises all day, but when someone from Costa Commercial came, he brought nothing and told them that they would not be even giving us a change of clothes. After the way they handled the evacuation, I am totally disgusted."
Melissa Goduti, 28, of Wallingford, Connecticute (via Associated Press): "It was so unorganized, our evacuation drill was scheduled for 5 p.m. We had joked 'What if something had happened today?'"
Sandra Cook, whose daughter Kirsty -- a dancer on the ship -- was one of the 37 Brits onboard the cruise ship (via BBC News): "Thank God she got off safely and survived it … I asked whether she had anything, she'd lost everything, and she said that she was lucky to be alive and very thankful."
Christine Hammer, 65 from Bonn, Germany, describing dinner on her first cruise ever (via Associated Press): "We heard a crash. Glasses and plates fell down and we went out of the dining room and we were told it wasn't anything dangerous."
Mike van Dijk, a 54-year-old from Pretoria, South Africa (via Associated Press): "We had to scream at the controllers to release the boats from the side. We were standing in the corridors and they weren't allowing us to get onto the boats. It was a scramble, an absolute scramble."
Alan and Laurie Willits from Wingham, Ontario, were celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary and watching a magic show when the ship lurched and started to list (via Associated Press): "And then the magician disappeared."
Italian hairdresser Roberto Bombardieri, onboard as part of hair-stylist training course called “Lookmaker 2012” (via Italian news Web site Vincenza Today): “We were at dinner, and around at 9:40 we heard a loud noise. The plates and cutlery fell on the floor, and the lights went out and triggered panic. At first the staff told us to stay quiet, not to worry, but in the meantime we noticed that the ship was tilting more and more dangerously to one side.”
Italian passenger Antonietta Sintolli, 65 (via Reuters): "I was sure I was going to die. We were in the lifeboats for two hours, crying and holding on to each other. People were trying to steal lifejackets from each other. We could only get one [made for] for children."
Fabio Costa, a shop worker on the ship (via BBC News): "Everything happened really fast. Everybody tried to get a life boat and people started to panic. A lot of people were falling down the stairs and some were hurt because things fell on them. Everybody was trying to get on the boats at the same time. When people had to get on the lifeboats they were pushing each other. It was a bit chaotic. We were trying to keep passengers calm, but it was just impossible. Nobody knew what was going on. We were on the same level as the water so some people started to swim because they weren't able to get on the lifeboats."
Monica, a German passenger, who was in Concordia's theater when it began to suffer problems (via BBC News): "It was difficult to walk. First it moved once, then to the left and then more on the right. The boat was tipping one side. You could see the ship was sinking more and more. In half an hour it sank halfway into the water."
Steffano, a 21-year-old from Buenos Aires, who was on the ship with his mother, two brothers and girlfriend (via Italian news agency ANSA): “I saw desperate people. All around me screaming and terror but also uncertainty about what to do. In my opinion, we were not adequately helped by the crew to abandon ship.”
Jose Rodriguez, 43, a Honduran barman who has worked for the cruise company for 14 years (via Agence France Press): “It was dark, we were all really frightened but we were lucky to be close to land."
