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.

Israeli Ship Sinks after Collision with Cruise Ship

Swissinfo - Switzerland - August 31, 2007

Ship collision kills Ukrainian and Indonesian sailors. JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israeli forces retrieved the bodies on Friday of two Ukrainian and Indonesian sailors who died when an Israeli freighter sank following a collision with a Cypriot cruise ship off the coast of Haifa, police said.
The forces had rescued 11 crew from the Israeli-owned "Shelly" cargo vessel, but the freighter had sunk and its captain and crew member had gone down with it, officials said. Some 700 passengers and crew of the "Salamis Glory" cruise ship were unharmed by the collision near the northern port of Haifa and a spokesman for the company said they would be flown to Cyprus. The cause of the crash was not immediately clear. Kofteros said experts from the shipping department would leave for Israel later on Friday to help authorities with the investigations.
