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.

More Evidence of Cruise Line Influencing Peddling and Media Manipulation?

the honeymoon cruise mystery.blogspot.com

The powers that be have decided to delete George Smith's entry in wikipedia (why, that's a good question). I found this information to be a very straightforward account of what is 'known' about what happened to George Smith IV. So I am reprinting it below before it is lost forever to the caverns of the Internet. The information needs to be out there...

Brilliance of the Seas

Did Wikipedia bow to pressure from the Cruis Lines?
The pattern of intimidation by the Cruise Lines contiues...

(More information to come in the near future)
In an ongoing effort to avoid regulations, taxation and negative publicity, the Cruise Lines continue to wage war against the government and the media. They have used lobbyists related to the Abramoff scandal to spend millions of dollars lobbying Congress. cruiselinelobbyistrelatedtoabramoff.blogspot.com/ They and their employees contribute millions of dollars to the same candidates. safecruise.blogspot.com/2005_12_01 They keep information and statistics secret concerning crimes, assaults, deaths, accidents, and disease from the government and victim's families. They incorporate and flag their ships in poor third world countries to avoid health, safety, security, and envirionmental rules. The worst being Royal Caribbean whose fees paid to Liberia helped finance Dictator Charles Taylor's Reign of Terror and mass murder. safecruise.blogspot.com/2006_04_01

Now it appears they have used their advertising dollars to limit freedom of the press and pressure the media to stop covering their serious safety and security problems. The New York Post September 13, 2006 by Keith Kelly

64 people overboard since the year 2000. Hundreds of sexual assaults, most not reported and few if any prosecuted. Will Congress and the media continue to allow this type of cover-up, sit on the evidence and ignore the red flags like they did with the Mark Foley page sex scandal? The lives of cruise ship passengers are at stake as well as the mental and physical health of the hundreds of women who have been or will be assaulted on cruise ships whether as passengers or crewmembers. If they back down and bow to the pressure of the cruiselines like Mort Zuckerman at the New York Daily News, our wives and children and female crew members will never be safe on a cruise vacation.

Hello and thanks for the opportunity to post on your blog. I am the webmaster of a website dedicated to cruise ships, and I am working on improving my content constantly. Hopefully I will find some more interesting info on your blog as I will check back soon. Till then, here are a few tips on selecting a cruise that I hope you and your readers will find interesting:
How long do you plan to cruise? (from three to fourteen nights, to world cruises which are the longest, lasting up to three months);
Where and how to search? You have two alternatives: a cruise travel agent or agency or the websites of cruise lines;
Facilities offered during the cruise (for instance, if you like to gamble you may want to choose a cruise line that has casinos on board; maybe facilities for your children which are offered by all major cruise lines);
Port of departure. You can choose it by the proximity to your home, if you want to save money and avoid expensive airfare;
Land and shore excursions (they are offered by all cruise lines, and last from two to three days, before, after or even during the cruise vacation). This kind of excursion gives you the opportunity to explore new cultures, destinations, visit new places, practice water sports, do some shopping etc.
If you’d like to read more about discount cruises or finding last minute cruises you are more than welcome to visit my website, Cruise-heaven.com
Have an excellent day!
