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.

Video of Sinking Cruise Ship Now Posted to Youtube


Cruiseship owners blame sea charts for sinking
The owners of a sunken cruise ship now resting on the ocean floor of Santorini's picturesque volcanic Caldera on Friday blamed erroneous sea charts as causing the maritime accident, with company officials charging that the exact location and depth of a reef struck by the ill-fated "Sea Diamond" were inaccurate. According to information presented in Athens by the head of operations for the Louis Hellenic Cruises company, the reef was listed at a distance of 57 metres from the shoreline, but in fact, was 131 metres from the shoreline, which in this case is the sheer rock cliffs of the popular holiday island's caldera. Additionally, Louis Cruise official George Koubenas said the depth of the reef was given as between 18 and 22 metres on a chart issued by Greece's relevant Hydrographic Service, instead of the actual five-metre depth.
