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.

Winter Haven couple is steaming after being kicked off of cruise ship, left in Bahamas


by SaraDorsey.

Heather Russel, Cruise Line Passenger:
“It's been a nightmare, a complete nightmare.”
That's pretty much the general consensus among passengers getting off the carnival cruise ship sensation at port Canaveral today. But at least these people got a ride back to the us on the ship. Nathan Leslie and his wife Jennifer from Winter Haven were not so lucky.
Jennifer Leslie, Cruise Line Passenger:
“As we were getting back on the ship we insert our card and an alarm goes off we are escorted up to the desk escorted told we were being barred from the ship.”
The Leslie's were kicked off with two other couples and left in Nassau they say for complaining to the captain about bad food, a dirty ship and missing a $300 excursion to swim with the dolphins.
Jennifer Leslie, Cruise Line Passenger:
“We demanded our money back that's all we did. I simply just said I want my money back."”
