From CNN back in 2012:
Captain Francesco Schettino of the Italian cruise ship Costa Concordia reportedly jumped ship while many passengers were still aboard, after carelessly running the ship onto the rocks. He was imprisoned for his deeds. In comparison, Capt. Piero Calamai of the liner Andrea Doria, although he made serious navigation and judgment errors that contributed to the 1956 collision with Stockholm, did exactly what a captain should do afterward. He stayed with the ship, reportedly did the best he could to manage the evacuation, and was the last survivor to leave the ship. He reportedly had wished to go down with the ship, but his officers persuaded him not to do so. The writer characterized him as a tragic but respectable figure in maritime history.
