When I got back, there was an e-mail from my dad, explaining that the cruise ship they were on in Greece sank. I had to read the e-mail 3 times before it really clicked.
The ship my parents were on sank!!!
Apparently they're okay. Still, scary stuff.
There are plenty of articles about this on the Internet. Here are a couple you might find interesting:

They're finishing the vacation, undaunted.
