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.

Lawmakers want to know whether the industry accurately reports statistics.

75 people have gone overboard since the year 2000. Last year was the worst yet with 22 persons going overboard.
When will the cruise lines take steps to improve safety and security for the millions of passengers they have each year. See http://www.projectsafecruise.blogspot.com/ for a plan for enhanced security for crew and passengers.
