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.

CSI Miami and Without a Trace plan Episodes Involving Cruise Ship Deaths

On the May 1 episode of CSI Miami the team investigates a double homicide aboard a cruise ship docked in Miami.

Actress Poppy Montgomery from Without a Trace mentioned the George Smith cruise ship story to the show's writers.
Poppy said, "That would be interesting, just to take the premise of a cruise ship, and somebody disappears on the ship -- not necessarily the same story, but the idea of that. Normally the FBI will come in when a missing-persons case or a kidnapping crosses either state or international lines, if they're American citizens. So it would have to be a cruise ship where the cruise company was based out of New York ... look at me trying to figure out stories. I love it. It's because I've been watching too many of these shows."

Will the producers of either show take this opportunity to point out the fact that 47 people have gone overboard since 2000 and the continued negligence of the cruise companies? Will they educate the public about the need for better security oversight and give them tips they can use to ensure their only safety? Did the producers contact George Smith's family, Internationalcruisevictims.org, or any maritime attorneys? These shows could do more to educate the public and reach more people than all of the news shows on cable. I had written to the CSI actress Emily Proctor last year via her web site: http://www.emilyprocter.com/ suggesting that they do an episode on cruise safety/security and help educate the public about the problems and give tips for personal safety.
