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.

A juvenile humpback whale collided with the 2,670-passenger Sapphire Princess cruise ship and the crash killed the whale. The whale was found stuck on the bow of the cruise ship, and federal authorities are investigating the incident, reports Newsoxy.
According to AOL Travel, a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) spokeswoman, Julie Speegle, tells the Juneau Empire, the ship was south of Juneau near Tracy Arm, when the whale became lodged on the bow.
