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.

Family of 21 Year Old Ohio Man Who Fell Overboard on Royal Caribbean Returns Home Angry & with Unanswered Questions After Visiting Ship

MIAMI, May 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Twenty-One (21) year old, Daniel LouisDiPiero, of Canfield, Ohio, tragically fell to his death while a passengeraboard the Mariner of the Seas. The cruise ship had left Florida and washeading for the Bahamas. Daniel was last seen at approximately midnight ofthe first night of the cruise on the way to the Bahamas. A ship securitycamera revealed Daniel alone on the fourth deck of the ship near the frontof the ship where he apparently passed out for the next two (2) hours. The camera captured further footage showing Daniel going overboard atapproximately 2:16 a.m., apparently showing Daniel getting sick and leaningoverboard when he fell. Despite the video footage, the authorities were not alerted until 7:00p.m. Apparently, RCCL does not monitor their security cameras. It appearsafter Daniel was reported missing by his friends the video footage whichwould have shown Daniel going overboard was not promptly reviewed.Accordingly there was a significant delay in any rescue efforts for Daniel. Although the cruise line made arrangements to fly the family to St.Thomas to go onboard the ship to see where Daniel went overboard and tolearn more details about what happened to Daniel, the family soon realizedit was simply part of the cruise ship's attempt to maintain a favorablelight in the public. The family was appalled to learn Royal Caribbeanimmediately issued a statement to all of the passengers onboard the ship,revealing confidential information that had been obtained by the FBI duringtheir investigation, and omitting other information surrounding thecircumstances of Daniel's death which would have more accurately explainedwhat happened. Royal Caribbean issued a statement to the passengers, andthen went immediately into the public media, stating that Daniel, alongwith friends who he was traveling with, had "smuggled" liquor onboard theship and had consumed that liquor prior to falling overboard. This was anobvious attempt to immediately portray to the passengers onboard the ship, as well as to the general public, that the tragic incident was totally the fault of Daniel. The cruise ship seized a video tape by Daniel and hisfriends and discussed its contents with passengers and the media, allwithin hours of the family having been advised of the tragic death ofDaniel. These inexcusable actions on the part of the cruise line havecaused severe/emotional trauma to the family and friends...
