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.

Brimble's Fare Finally Refunded by P & O Cruise Lines

http://www.theroyalgazette.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060712/SHIPPING/107120165

Thanks to the work done by families of cruise victims http://www.internationalcruisevictims.org/,

the cruise industry is receiving increased scrutiny.

Kathleen Taylor, a night shift manager on board the Pacific Sky, told the inquest that incidents of nudity and public sex on board P&O cruise ships happened up to 20 times a night.P&O said after that testimony that unruly passengers would be kicked off future cruises.International Cruise Victims has lobbied the US Congress with a ten-point plan to tighten security on board cruise ships and address what it sees as a fundamental problem: the hazy legal jurisdiction of ships once they enter international waters.The advocacy group was formed early this year after several US families found they had similar cruise ship horror stories after family members mysteriously disappeared at sea.It lists dozens of cases of apparent crimes at sea.The group wants faster reporting, revision of alcohol serving procedures on cruises, and tighter security including independent marshals on board ships.“It’s to post international police on a boat and have them being independent to the ship itself because cruise liners are driven by profit, they’re not driven by responsibility, security and safety,” Mark Brimble said.P&O have just announced they will refund Brimble’s fare. An earlier insurance claim lodged by the family was rejected because illegal drugs were listed as the cause of death.
