Cruise Line safety

I just read an article on aol travel about the hazards of cruising. The author mentioned Pirates, Falling over ship, viruses, collision, seasickness, rogue waves and missing the ship.

What was astonishing to me was that the author found absolutely nothing wrong with safety and security on cruise ships!

There is still a big worry that needs to be addressed and that is unreported crimes on cruise ships.

What I learned this past year was astonishing, and I hope readers will take a few minutes to get to know the facts about safety and security on cruise ships.
In a matter of months or hopefully sooner we will see a law that will mandate a different process and will upgrade ships security measures that will protect the safety of guests.

The Cruise Vessel Safety and Security Act has been opposed by the cruise industry for years, but after the valiant efforts of Senator John Kerry and Congresswoman Doris Matsui, the International Cruise Line Association has finally seen the light and agreed to support this initiative. The law is a great start in providing some much needed safety and security provisions to protect passengers. Ken Carver, President of the International Cruise Victims Association in a transcribed radio interview talks about this 6 year courageous fight to change safety and security on cruise ships.
You can listen to Ken's last interview on TravelTalkRADIO at:
Thanks to Ken and his determination, we might not have to worry about being a victim of crimes on cruise ships much longer.

Would love your opinion on the legislation that will most likely be approved shortly.
