  1. I wonder if there were eyewitnesses, we haven't heard anything, but I am sure statements were taken by the authorities.
  2. Sadly there is a part of me that feels the grandfather planned this. It appears to me on the video that he took his time walking to the window, leaning over and looking out the window, then picking up his granddaughter and putting her life in danger, knowing the window was open and it was a long drop to the ground. So sorry for these feelings, but my heart is with this little girl and the last seconds of her short life. The more the family pushes “it was the cruise lines fault” the more I begin to wonder if it really was. Now the lawyer wants the videos dismissed!
  3. This is exactly how I feel. I feel for the child that her life was taken from her. In honor of Chloe the grandfather should have admitted guilt and spoke to other people about how he made a terrible judgement in lifting Chloe up and putting her at risk. I could of felt more sympathy for him and Chloe’s family, but the rush to sue and make excuses for what happened changed my feelings toward the grandfather and family. After that it was about Chloe and no one was taking responsibility for what happened to her and her fear during the last seconds of her life.

  5. First, people say they feel bad for the family, I no longer feel any sympathy for them, but I do for Chloe, what the final seconds of her life must of been like. Watching the video, it appears that the grandfather held Chloe out of the window. He is responsible for her death, no matter how the family or lawyers want to spin it. If they want to help other children, admit guilt and tell parents/grandparents about what happened and to not ever put a child in that situation, I would definitely feel differently towards the family if they would have reacted in that manner. Even if they were deeply in shock when this happened and were not thinking when they agreed to be represented by the attorney, they have now had a chance to realize the grandfather’s actions caused their daughter’s death, and speak on how to make sure it never happens again. Instead of anger, they would have my sympathy if everyone would have admitted it was a horrible accident and we want to learn from this. As it is now, Chloe will be remembered as the little girl who had parents that wanted to get rich off of her dying, instead of teaching us the risks involved when we don’t think before we act.
  6. I am sailing on the adventure of the seas in May 2020, repositioning to Cape Liberty. Would like to stay in the area for two nights, and visit NYC. Suggestions for a hotel and best way to get into the city from NJ. Will be flying back to Florida from Newark. Thank you!
  7. I want to add that I have friends who have never cruised, and they hear the parents on the news. They seem to believe that the windows were child level, like the picture of the little girl banging on the hockey window, not up high and the open window was by the children's pool area. I try to explain to them that the windows are not level with the deck, they are almost waist or chest high. When I have shown them pictures they are shocked because of what they hear on the news, and they immediately see that the windows are open. The lawyer and parents seem to be trying to convince those who have never cruised that the ship was at fault, and if listening to my friends is any indication, it is working. I am sad the little girl died in this awful way, but angry that the parents and grandfather will not take responsibility for their actions, if they did, maybe they could teach parents to be more aware of how suddenly accidents can happen. A friend's son-in-law drove over his daughter who was behind his car, she survived but was in the hospital recovering for weeks, he took full responsibility for his actions and told his friends over and over to always make sure your child is no where near the car, to not just take it for granted.
  8. And what if a child put their hand in the fan! The cruise line will always be blamed. Sad for what happened, but angry that the family will not take responsibility. I am sure it was an accident, the grandfather didn’t want to hurt his granddaughter, but speak truthfully if you want to make sure it never happens to another child. No other parent will put a child on a railing, because in a split second that child can get away from you.
