Continuity mistake: In the dining room, after the ship has turned over, Scott tells Mrs. Rogo she has to take off her gown because she can't climb in it. Mr. Rogo says "she's got nothin' on under it." To which she answers, "Panties, what else do I need?" She changes into her husband's shirt. However, when they are climbing through the ventilation shaft, just before she gets onto the ladder, she's wearing a bra.
Factual error: In the scene where the ship encounters the tidal wave, the ship is located in the Mediterranean Sea and is struck by a tsunami generated by a sub-sea earthquake 130 miles off the coast of Crete. The Mediterranean is a relatively calm body of water compared to the Atlantic. Beyond that, a tsunami wave from even a major earthquake will pass almost unnoticed to ships at sea; tsunamis only rise up and become dangerous in shallow water on coastlines.Charles Austin Miller
Factual error: When they first encounter the sliding red fire door it is supposedly hot to the touch, when the fire door is slid open it leads to the kitchens, the "fires" are the gas burners from the stoves. First of all, the ovens and stove tops on ships are run on electricity, not natural gas. These burners would not produce sufficient heat to make the room extremely hot, not even with hot steam from burst pipes.
