There’s been a lot of talk about maritime travel in the news this week, with most of the stories being quite grim considering the fact that they’re centered on a missing group of Titanic wreckage enthusiasts who are likely going to suffocate to death.
On the complete opposite end of the spectrum of that absolutely nightmarish story, however, is *this dude* Blake Rosier, who somehow found himself as the only guest on an entire commercial cruise ship and posted videos about his experience to TikTok.
Alone in a cruise ship videos are going crazy and are all over the news
“I don’t know how this happened exactly… They even have a movie playing for just me… All the shows are still going, the pools are open. [It’s] literally just me here,” Rosier says in his video.
Now, while the videos from Rosier were originally recorded and posted in May of last year, they’ve since gone re-viral due to the story of the missing submersible, which led to him posting a new video about his experience just last night.
In addition to the above video, Rosier previously posted a series of ten videos that detailed his experience as the sole attendant on a cruise ship.
Now, as for the five unfortunate people trapped aboard the Titan submersible, reports indicate that the vessel likely ran out of oxygen on Thursday morning, which is when this article was published. At the time of this writing, the Titan has not been found. Unfortunately, reports indicate that if the submersible was found, a rescue would likely take up to eight hours, meaning the window to free the survivors while still alive has likely closed.
The Titan story has also taken some strange turns, too, such as the reports that the vessel is controlled with an old Logitech video gaming controller and that a waiver told potential attendees that “this experimental vessel has not been approved or certified by any regulatory body, and could result in physical injury, emotional trauma, or death.”
There have also been some bizarre tangential stories, as well, such as the stepson of billionaire Hamish Harding — who is one of the five lost crew members aboard the Titan — using his 15-minutes of internet fame to shoot his shot at the pop-punk band Blink-182 and at subscription service models.
