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.

More families share cruise ship horror stories at Congressman Shays Hearing on March 7, 2006

More families share cruise ship horror stories
Stamford Advocate - Stamford,CT,USA
... There was a Massachusetts woman who went missing from an Alaskan cruise for days before her family learned of it; parents who vanished from a Caribbean cruise ...
Washington resident Son Pham testified about the disappearance of his parents aboard a cruise last May. He and family members had paid for the seven-day Caribbean cruise as a Mother's Day present. The couple vanished from the ship's deck, leaving behind a purse and sandals.

Pham said it took three hours after family members alerted crew members to the disappearance before ship personnel made an announcement over the ship's speakers and four hours before the Coast Guard was alerted. Although officials have said the couple likely committed suicide, Pham said that his parents were happy and looked forward to visiting their native Vietnam later that year, their first trip back in three decades.

"Nothing will change until the cruise industry admits that we do have problems, we do have issues," Pham said.

First off, I have to say that I LOVE cruise ships.
I spent over 12 years working on them as a Scuba Instructor,
Shore Excursion Manager and an IT Officer.

For 2 years I also worked shoreside in Miami as a database IT guy.

During my years on ships, I have to stay that many things happened
and that life is definately stranger than fiction on cruise ships.

Many people have asked me to share the stories I have collected over
the years, so I am complying with their request.

My site is: www.cruiseshipstories.com

If you had any stories of your own to add, please
send them to me and I will be happy to add them.
