Just at that moment her parents and sisters returned, and Bobby-Jo quickly pushed Mark off. She later watched him and Dragan talk to many other passengers in the bar. They seemed eager to talk to and meet everyone, indiscriminately: men, women, families, passengers of any age. Dianne was drinking and socialising at the Legends Sports Bar with other adults in her group. As music was playing in the background, she and Alma started to dance. The sisters, who both loved dancing, found the music too light, and hoped for something they could ‘let their hair down’ to.

Alma had felt her stomach drop when she heard the Code Alpha. It sounded like an emergency, and now she could see a team of medical staff down the corridor. She asked the staff member blocking off the corridor whether the person in trouble was male or female, but they did not know. Nobody could tell Alma what was going on, or if it had anything to do with Dianne. Not only could the passengers not go down the corridor to their cabins, they were told they could not return upstairs either—the elevator had to be available for the medical team.
