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.

Emergency response haphazard, Crown Princess passengers say

www.floridatoday.com
BY DONNA BALANCIA 7/22/06
Cruise-passenger advocates are pushing for better emergency training of crew members, following the chaos that took place Tuesday aboard the Crown Princess, which tilted soon after departing Port Canaveral, and left hundreds of people injured.

I was on the Crown Princess when it tipped. It was frightening I was on my balcony being pushed toward the water. It was definitely more then a fifteen degree list. And when the captain came on the PA and said we were continuing on to NY we really got scared. Then he came on and said the cruise was terminated because of the severity of the injuries I am sure. There was no formal headcount either. And when we departed the ship, they took back our cruise cards....I guess that was their formal headcount. There was a lot of interior damage to the ship. Many people got off as soon as the ship went back to Port Canaveral. You have to be realistic and say that there would be no way to evacauate 4,000 people from a ship.

Most everything you have commented on and are fighting for is already in place. You speak entirely from an AMERICAN point of view (not that other citizens of other Countries would have different views) but remember - if you don't like what's being offered - Don't go...no one is forcing you to go on a cruise. Don't get me wrong, I whole-heartedly support your rationale but I think it is to the extreme and although it looks great on paper (and in a "perfect world") - to put it into effect is going to be disasterous at best. The Security procedures and guidelines in place are not neccessarily open to public view and scrutiny and therefore presents a "unknown" factor that some don't like. I have travelled on 5 cruise ships, 3 different lines, in 6 different years to 3 different continents and have never felt UNSAFE. I now work in the industry and STILL have never felt that my life has been put in danger but the or as a result of the direct negligence of Cruise Lines or their crew members. Good luck on your proposal, I sincerely wish you well as it would be (as I said before - in a "perfect world") a wonderful achievement.
