I should point out there are no official rules regarding women and children first, it is only a chivalry code of conduct but the captain can determine whatever as he holds absolute powers aboard a ship. A ship should have 125% life boats eliminating such an issue, but yes, the Titanic didn’t have enough life boats.

As for the Costa Concordia, a huge cruise ship that capsized in Italy in 2012, the captain actually took a off as mentioned in the video above. The coast guard on contacting him tried their best to get him back on board but leave very clear their priorities… Its worth mentioning fights broke out when men tried to board lifeboats and many newspapers shamed men also.Cruse ships are often loaded with elderly people… those should have priority, along with kids and disable people.
