Costa Concordia is a single ship with most death tolls on a single cruise, but Costa Cruises does not hold the first place for total death tolls as a company. This title goes to Carnival Cruise Lines with total of 68 deaths

Welcome to the place where dream vacations are made a reality; where people from all around the world make up a little unique culture by working and living together. We hear this most of the times about the cruise ships and the cruise ship industry, but what we rarely hear about are the dark and devastating numbers of people who have taken their last cruise not by choice. These people boarded a ship by themselves, using their two feet, but exited the ship in a body bag. So lets take a walk down memory lane of reality and burst a couple of bubbles which some people have about the vacationing, living, and working on a cruise ship. Lets take off the pink sunglasses and see the reality that accidents and death does happen in paradise, after all.
After researching the statistics of death tolls aboard the cruise ships, the numbers may be a little surprising to all. Bellow the text there is a chart for visual presentation of the death tolls aboard some of the most popular worldly renown cruise ships and following is a little explanation of the same. Costa Concordia is a single ship with most death tolls on a single cruise, but Costa Cruises does not hold the first place for total death tolls as a company. This title goes to Carnival Cruise Lines with total of 68 deaths of crew members and guests. Three of Carnival's ships have death toll of 7 people Carnival Inspiration, Carnival Liberty, Carnival Miracle. Only five of the Carnival Cruise ships are without incidents of mortality and those are as follows: Magic, Glory, Freedom, Carnival, and Carnival. MSC cruises is the company with best record. This company deserves this title with only three deaths in their entire fleet along with Disney Cruises who have two deaths.
These numbers will most certainly not sway people from vacationing or working on these cruise ships or companies, but it should open the eyes to all people in respecting the motto which should be applicable on every floater “safety first.”
