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.

Cruise ship runs aground in Antarctica

www.theage.com.auA CRUISE ship carrying 370 people, including 12 Australians, was to be evacuated last night after it grounded off the Antarctic Peninsula. The incident happened at the peak of the polar cruise season, and only days ahead of a controversial transit through the same waters by the first megaliner to sail there, Golden Princess. A sister ship, Nordnorge, was eight hours away from Nordkapp and altered course to take all of the passengers aboard, Mr Torkildsen said. They would be taken to Ushuaia in Argentina, he said.
