  • Cruise ship fire

    September 9, 2015

    ‘s time the U.S. require “all” cruise ships entering U.S. ports meet our safety and inspection standards. Most people don’t realize that nearly every cruise ship is registered outside the U.S. in an effort to avoid U.S. maintenance and safety requirements. Moreover, every cruise ship that caught fire and/or broke down in the last decade is registered offshore.

    Airlines, on the other hand, must meet U.S. safety standards if they land on U.S. soil. Would you fly on planes registered offshore that didn’t have to meet U.S. maintenance and safety requirements? How big of a tragedy must we endure before this loophole is closed?

    Back in the day( 80’s), the maximum on carnival ships was 1500 passengers. There were no ship fires, or airborne diseases on the ships I was on, and I was on plenty.. Each ship had different designs and themes. Now it’s cookie cutter ships, mass crowds, accidents, fires ,airborne illnesses, man overboard. Greed will get you that!
