Critical handling of Cruise line troubles that began last year and have hit virtually all the major crusie lines in the world. My father and experienced seaman due to his military service would not have made same mistake the Captain of the Laguardia did by running aground off Italian coast because he's succesfully navigated the same waters.

The Cruise Liners

My parents are now retirees and recently narrowly avoided being caught on one of those Cruise ships that alot of people got sick on. It was the Legend by Carnival Crusie lines and they had just gone on it weeks before they had an incident. They like to go in the winter cause it's the way they like to celebrate their anniversary. They've been together a long time but I'm concerned my dad wants to go on another one despite all the bad news to the contrary. Having been a world traveler himself because he was in the service he has already seen many of the islands and nice places for free already. But now my mother is going with him and they deserve it I just worry about them getting in trouble. My dad would know what to do but mom? I doubt very seriously she would remain calm. I'm not trying to hamper anyone's experience. I'd loved it when me and my sisters went to the Bahamas a few years before in the summertime. It was hot but went well. We did not get diverted which has happened to my parents once or twice cause of bad weather but they still had a good time. These cruises are extremely popular but I doubt they have the staff regulary checked which they should do more often and what about those getting aboard? Ithough to obtain a passprt you had to have your shot record. I guess that can be lax or bought if your in a hurry to get out of your country. My father brang up to me that theyget around alot of regulatons because those cruise ships are not built or homeported in the United States. Interestingly enough their address are int he islands wherethey get profit for takin folks down there and then everyone else feeds off of the tourist dollar. Hopefully this dollar won't dry up due to a bad rep. Royal Caribbean and Carnival already hit.Whose next? Last I heard it was the Pacific Princess Line of ships. Prepared to be boarded by U.S. inspectors if this continues. They don't play that in the U.S.
