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.

Somali pirates seize French cruise ship


April 5, 2008
A French cruise ship is being kept under surveillance following its seizure by pirates off coast of Somalia, Friday. The ship is the 88 m, 64-passenger, three masted sail-assisted Le Ponant, operated by CNA CGM subsidiary Compagnie des Iles du Ponant. CMA CGM says 30 crew members and no passengers were on board when the ship was seized. It was headedback to the Mediterranean after completing a Seychelles itinerary. A French foreign ministry statement said that on news of the incident, all the means at France's disposal in the region were immediately mobilized and an interministerial crisis team has been set up, under an antipiracy plan set in action on Friday by Prime Minister Francois Fillon. Minister of Defense Herve Morin said earlier today that French authorities have had no contact since the attack with either the ship's crew or the pirates
