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.

The FBI has launched an investigation into the death of a 33-year-old mother who fell overboard off a Carnival cruise ship into the Gulf of Mexico at 2 a.m. Friday morning. 

Samantha Broberg, 33, was sitting on a deck railing on the massive Carnival Liberty ship and tumbled backwards from the 10th deck into the water about 200 miles off the coast of Galveston, Texas, according to Carnival. 

272 individuals have gone overboard on cruise ships since 1995

Massive new cruise ship spews out as much sulphurous emissions gas per day as 376 MILLION cars'

We must stop the pollution they cause in port cities 

  • Harmony of the Seas has 16 decks, 23 swimming pools and 52 trees
  • 16-cylinder Wartsila engines will burn 1,147 gallons of fuel an hour
  • Pollution analysts say it will emit more sulphur than millions of cars
