Absolutely shameful.  I don't expect the captain to go down with the ship, but he ought to be the very LAST person off.  That's just how that works.  When Capt. Sully ditched a plane in the Hudson river, he made one final sweep of the aircraft to make sure no one was left before he himself got out.  If you don't want that responsibility, don't sign up to be a captain!

In this case it might not be quite the same as the concordia.

Remember, the captain's duty is to preserve life. If his ship has rolled, he has people in the water and possibly trapped, it is possible that the best place for him to direct the rescue is from another boat. He knows his ship, can help direct responders, etc. Him being trapped below decks doesn't do any good for anyone.

In other words, how about we wait for some actual details and facts before throwing someone to the sharks.

Chesley Sullenberger is a man among men.  Unfortunately the ratio is about a million to one.

Yeah, no. A captain abandoning a sinking ship in order to secure his personal safety before seeing to the safety of his passengers and crew is an act of supreme cowardice.

Maybe so, but it seems to me that if he was able to get his own lifeboat deployed, he should have managed more with it. Looks pretty bad for the captain to be in the *only* lifeboat deployed.
