ITALY : Women Claim Tragic Cruise Ship Was "Hotbed Of Sexual Harassment"And Drug Use.
A 5,000 page report sheds disturbing new light on the half sunken liner Costa Concordia... its disgraced captain and crew.
Two women ex-crew members told investigators they saw its officers using coke, drunk and harassing female staff.
One woman claimed that Captain Francesco Schettino 'used women as goods to be exchanged.'
At least 25 died...with 7 missing and presumed dead...after the liner's 13 January sinking off an Italian island.
