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.

Poor Safety and Security: Cruise Lines Bottom Out

Unsafe cruise ship detained in Great Britain
REUTERS (London) May 17, 2006 "Vistamar, flying the Maltese flag, was detained by inspectors because of safety abuses. Concerns were raised when items such as fire dampers were clearly inoperative; both lifeboats were damaged; escape signs were missing and various means of escape were not marked clearly,"

Shares of Carnival Corp. Dropped 12 per cent yesterday Timesonline.co.uk (London) May 17, 2006 Shares of Royal Caribbean Cruises, the world's second biggest luxury cruise operator, fell about 5 per cent on concern that its arch-rival's announcement could signal difficulties across the industry. Analysts said that Carnival could also be suffering from a shift in sentiment towards cruising in North America. In addition to a fire on one of its ships in March, which killed one passenger and injured 11 others, Carnival is one of 15 cruise lines involved in a US Congress investigation into sexual assaults on cruises.

Celebrity Cruise Ship Captain Fails Breath-Alcohol Test Seattle Post-Intelligencer May 20, 2006 The Mercury, which has a capacity to carry 1,884 passengers, was delayed in port at Pier 66 for more than an hour before departing at 6:30 p.m., under the direction of another captain. Lt. Cmdr. Rick Rodriguez of the Coast Guard said the captain was being investigated for operating a commercial vessel under the influence of alcohol, which is a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in prison.
