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.

Did Liberal Alcohol Policies and Poor Security Measures Contribute to Possible Murder on Carnival Cruise Ship?

PASSENGERS leaving P&O's Pacific Sun yesterday told how a man who died on board the ship had been king hit following an alcohol-fuelled fight with another man over $20. (P&O is owned by Carnival) Witnesses said the 31-year-old Dulwich Hill man, who was found dead in a toilet next to the ship's Legends bar, asked security guards for help before his death early Tuesday morning. Police suggested in earlier reports that the man's death was due to natural causes, but some passengers told a different story.Renae Sherri, 29, of Melbourne, said holidaymakers had been singing Happy Birthday to the man in the bar before he died. "I was going to the toilet and his sister was screaming, 'Who did it? Tell me who did it. Who was he?'," Ms Sherri said."I heard he got hit in the back and he fell on the floor."The man is understood to have been travelling with his wife, two sisters, brother, brother-in-law and some family friends after winning the trip in a 2GB competition.The cruise was the radio station's biggest competition, with 75 listeners and their families winning tickets.With the inquest into the death of Dianne Brimble on the Pacific Sky finishing on July 27, the family-themed cruise on August 3 was intended to create some positive publicity for P&O. (The cruise lines always seem to be quick to blame the victim or declare that a passenger's death was from natural causes.) Ali Aryan, 28, said he was told by a female friend of the family that a fight had broken out about money and there had been a scuffle." Other passengers told The Sun-Herald there had been an argument before the man was found dead.
