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.

Coast Guard Searches for American Woman who Fell Overboard from Norwegian Cruise Ship near Cancun; Ship Captain Not Notified for 8 Hours

News.yahoo.com

MEXICO CITY – Three Mexican Navy boats and a helicopter were searching the waters off the Caribbean resort of Cancun on Friday for an American woman who reportedly fell from a cruise ship, authorities said. A U.S. Coast Guard search-and-rescue crew using a Falcon jet halted its efforts to find 36-year-old Jennifer Feitz late Friday, but will resume early Saturday morning using a larger C-130 aircraft, said Petty Officer Third Class Nick Ameen. Feitz's husband reported her missing from the Norwegian Pearl cruise ship just before 5 a.m. EST Friday. Her hometown was not available.

103 INDIVIDUALS HAVE GONE OVERBOARD SINCE THE YEAR 2000. THAT'S AN AVERAGE OF ABOUT ONE PER MONTH, YET CONGRESS HAS YET TO IMPROVE SECURITY AND SAFETY RULES. http://www.cruisejunkie.com/Overboard.html

Many of the deaths were never investigated thoroughly and were never solved. Foul play should be considered for all incidents until they are fully investigated. The Cruise Lines continue to tell the media that this is a rare occurence. Nothing has improved since our ctuise in 2005 when a beloved and respected couple fell overboard and died and the ship did not return to where they fell for over 12 hours and then there was no investigation of their murder. In the most recent case, the captain was not even notified of the death until 8 hours later. If somone died or was injured in a bar or a restaurant could they get away with waiting 8 hours before reporting it. Negligence by the cruise line and perhaps Congress? There have been recent congressional hearings but no effective legislation.
Then again why would any of the cruise lines be concerned about the death of one customer?

"98 Indvidiuals Have Gone Overbaord Since 2000 Yet Cruise Lines Profit Again from Murders at Sea but Offer No Protection from Rape or Death"
Cruise lines were still offering "Murder Mystery" cruises a year after the well-publicized Death of Geroge Smith on Royal Caribbean.
