Levy Leaks

These documents were sent anonymously to our group by what is believed is an ex-employee of RCL. Although this cannot be verified, the sender has implied this is the tip of the iceberg, and much much more will be heading into the public view as the truth needs to be told.

These leaked documents have been converted into plain text (time permitting and depending on the document) using OCR software and therefore may contain some mistakes. If you notice any major mistakes compared to the original images, please post on twitter using the #zxvega hashtag and we will make the corrections.
