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.

Body Of Missing Cruise Passenger Washes Ashore

A woman's body that washed up on a Hollywood beach Monday morning has been identified as a cruise ship passenger who vanished late Sunday.The Broward Sheriff's Office says the body was discovered around 7:30 a.m. Monday on the beach in John U Lloyd state park by a ranger. Sunday evening, the U.S. Coast Guard was contacted by the Discovery Sun casino cruise ship that a woman had vanished from the ship as it returned from a 3-day trip to the Bahamas.49-year old Monique Teresia Van der Steenstraeten's boyfriend told investigators that he last saw her around 9:30 p.m. Sunday when she left the lounge they were in to go have a cigarette on deck. When she didn't come back, and could not be found on the ship, he alerted the ship's officers who contacted the Coast Guard. During a search of the ship they allegedly found a suicide note written by Steenstraeten.
BSO says Steenstraeten's boyfriend has been cooperative with detectives and no foul play is suspected. The medical examiner performed an autopsy and has ruled the death a suicide.
