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.

Safety-Minded Cruise Company Takes Action to Protect Endangered Child

Dover New Hampshire 7/11/2007
When a woman appeared to be stumbling and had dropped her 2-year-old son while boarding the Portsmouth Harbor Cruises ship Heritage on Friday, staff on the Heritage kept a watchful eye on her and then called police when the boat returned to the dock. Police arrested Holly Spreen, 34, of 26H Piscassic St. in Newmarket for allegedly endangering her child while having a blood-alcohol level of 0.49 — more than six times the legal limit of 0.08 to operate a motor vehicle. Cole, co-owner of Portsmouth Harbor Cruises, was not on board during this incident but heard from his captain that Spreen had dropped the child in the small gap between the boat and the dock when boarding the vessel at about noon. The boy was not injured when his leg went into the gap. Ship officials said Spreen did not seem to be aware of her surroundings. Cole said that the ship is held to the same rules and regulations as any other bar in New Hampshire as it has a state liquor license. "If a customer were to come up that were visibly impaired and ask for a drink, we would refuse them," he said.
