Dianne was sitting at a table with her sister, Alma, and their friends. She was drinking a glass of wine and the group discussed how they wanted to spend their holiday. Dianne and Gamu—the Chards’ 30-year-old son—were already making plans to go dancing at the ship’s disco that night.

And for the rest of the day most of the eight seemed to be competing to see who could be the rudest and loudest. So, when a security guard came through the ship’s corridor on patrol, Jim Seeto asked if he could calm the men down. The guard spoke to them, and they appeared to become more subdued.

Mark—a short, stocky, but muscular man with mousy hair, thin lips, a Germanic look and a pinkish complexion—obliged, but danced with Dianne for just one song.
