Safe Cruise

Project Safe Cruise Press Release: See www.projectsafecruise.blogspot.com & details below. Leave a message if you have experienced incidents involving poor security & safety practices of cruise lines. Hearings are scheduled; we will provide them to Congress. We must act to insure passenger safety. The current lack of safety & security is not acceptable especially after 9/11. On 5/12/05, we were on the Carnival Destiny near Aruba when an elderly couple disappeared without a trace.

Government could save $50 billion per year by having two shifts of white collar employees work each day. Office space costs $50,000/year for each employee yet we only use space 30% of time. We can no longer afford to have banker's hours for all. With over 2 million federal employees this cost-free paradigm change could avoid lay offs/furloughs and reduce pollution.

Things We Think Congress Should Investigate

Please post any incidents that have happened to you or your family or friends involving poor security and safety practices of cruise lines. Congress should act to assure the safety of all passengers in the future by requiring background checks for some passengers and all crew members. Perhaps an "Amber" type alert for everyone on the ship and nearby ships within minutes of someone going overboard. Perhaps a sea marshall program like the air marshall program. Vacationing and retired cilvilian and military law enforcement personnel could have free cruises to help monitor and investigate security and safety problems. They should have authority to deal directly with the FBI or other government agency. There currently is no central database of crimes and accidents experienced by passengers or crew. Give us a note about problems you are aware of and any suggestions you have for improving the security and safety of all. The current lack of safety and security is not acceptable especially after 9/11. I have already asked our Congressman and Senators to look into a solution.
