2. MTS Oceanos, 1991
In 1991, the MTS Oceanos left the South African port city of East London bound for the city of Durban. Along the way, the cruise ship encountered increasingly rough waters. The growing waves began tossing the vessel from side to side. An explosion below decks saw water start flooding into the boat. Rather than raise the alarm and follow procedure, however, the captain and several members of the crew abandoned the ship, leaving hundreds of passengers to their fate.
