After reaching home, Vinod described the most horrible day of his life to his family and to the media saying, "We stopped serving dinner as soon as the ship started to shake. We assembled in the designated evacuation assembly point and started guiding the guests towards lifeboats which had capacity of carrying up to 150 people at a time."

"Women and children were sent in the first few batches of the boats which sailed away slowly from the sinking ship. The panic was visible on almost everybody’s face and comforting the guests became the biggest task," added Vinod.
