Additional Carnival Triumph Cancellatios PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 22 February 2013 23:39


February 13, 2013

Carnival Cruise Lines has announced the cancellations of 12 additional voyages of the Carnival Triumph following an engine room fire that has left vessel without propulsion.  The 12 cancelled cruises, which encompass sailings from Feb. 21 through April 13, 2013, are in addition to two previously cancelled voyages scheduled to depart Feb. 11 and Feb. 16.

Guests on the affected sailings will receive a full refund of their cruise fare, as well as non-refundable transportation costs, pre-paid shore excursions, gratuities, and government fees and taxes.   Guests will also receive a 25 percent discount on a future three- to five-day Carnival cruise or a 15 percent discount on a six- to seven-day cruise.  Travel agent commissions will be protected.

Carnival Triumph operates four- and five-day cruises from Galveston, Texas.

Bomb Threat for Port Canaveral Casino Boat Causes Port Closure PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 22 February 2013 18:28

Threat also delayed departure of a Carnival cruise ship.

A bomb threat emailed to a Port Canaveral, Fla.,-based Victory Casino Cruises boat caused a temporary port closure and delayed passenger boarding and departure of the Carnival Miracle cruise ship Thursday.

After learning of the bomb threat about 5 p.m., watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Jacksonville in Atlantic Beach immediately established a safety zone using boat crews from Station Port Canaveral and stopped all boating traffic in the port.

Additionally, the crew of the Miracle was directed not to board crew or passengers due to the cruise ship’s proximity, roughly 1 mile, to the casino boat.

After the Port Canaveral Police conducted multiple sweeps of the vessel and found no sign of explosive devices, Capt. Tom Allan, captain of the port, secured the safety zone and reopened the port to boating traffic.

“The safety of the public and all the responders was paramount as we assessed the credibility of this threat and determined there was no danger for those on or near the vessel,” said Allan. “Because of the excellent relationship we have with our local law enforcement partners, we were able to quickly determine the area is safe, allowing normal operations to resume.”

The FBI is investigating the source of the threat.

Cruising Is Safe and Healthy PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 22 February 2013 18:18

(CNN) -- A recent commentary by James Walker in CNN.com's opinion section grossly mischaracterized the cruise industry's practices and record, claiming that the industry is "largely unregulated" and "largely accountable to countries like Panama or the Bahamas." Nothing could be further from the truth.

Essentially every aspect of the cruise industry is heavily regulated and monitored under national and international maritime laws for many purposes, the most important of which is to protect the safety of passengers and crew.

A U.N. agency -- the International Maritime Organization -- mandates global standards for the safe operation of cruise ships through its 170-member governments, including the United States. These regulations are extensive and wide-ranging. They start with the design and construction of the ship and extend to the operation of the vessel, the emergency equipment on board, and scenarios for emergency situations, including the evacuation of a ship.

Regulation of the cruise industry involves many levels of enforcement -- the international; the flag state or the flag of the country that the ship is registered in; and the port state (the country a ship is visiting.)

For example, cruise ships that operate from U.S. ports are subject to strict U.S oversight and enforcement of international laws and regulations as well as all applicable federal laws of the United States. This oversight enforcement is carried out primarily by the U.S. Coast Guard.

Most significantly, this means that any ship entering a U.S. port, no matter what country's flag it sails under, is subject to U.S. Coast Guard examination for compliance with international and applicable U.S. regulatory standards, especially those related to safety.

The coast safety regulation enforcement of the U.S. Coast Guard begins at the concept or design stage for new cruise ships and continues throughout the ship's entire time of service. At any time, the responsible Coast Guard captain of a port can prevent any cruise ship from departing if a serious violation of any regulation is found or any dangerous condition exists.

Contrary to what the op-ed's author says, significant fires on board ships are rare. The global cruise industry has robust regulatory measures to protect passengers and crew. Fire safety regulations are continuously enhanced and have reduced the frequency and severity of fires. The last major overhaul of fire safety regulations entered into force in 2010, and those regulations remain the subject of continuous review and updating.

Every oceangoing ship in the Cruise Line International Association fleet must carry firefighting teams made up of crew members. They receive formal firefighting training and regular drills to ensure a rapid response in the unlikely event of a fire. The average oceangoing cruise ship has about 4,000 smoke detectors, 500 fire extinguishers, 16 miles of sprinkler piping, 5,000 sprinkler heads and six miles of fire hose.

Jobs in the cruise industry are highly sought after, and crew members have opportunities for career advancement. The industry offers opportunities not available for many crew members in their home countries, allowing them to support families, pay for college and even start their own businesses.

Beyond wages, crew members are provided free room and board in a clean, well-maintained environment. They receive cruise-line sponsored medical care at no cost. And the cruise industry maintains strict workplace standards set by the International Maritime Organization and the International Labor Organization -- both U.N. agencies.

The cruise industry also takes steps to prevent its people from bringing norovirus, which causes gastrointestinal illness, on board. About 10.3 million passengers embarked on Cruise Lines International Association ships from a U.S. port in 2012. There were 16 cases of cruise ship norovirus outbreaks reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last year, involving about 2,600 passengers out of those 10.3 million. To put this in perspective, the CDC reports norovirus causes about 20 million cases of gastroenteritis a year.

The cruise industry is subject to strict international regulation and oversight and fully promotes policies and practices that foster a safe, secure and healthy cruise ship environment. There's no doubt that cruising is one of the safest, affordable and enjoyable vacation experiences available today, which explains why a record 20.6 million passengers worldwide enjoyed a cruise vacation in 2011.

Cruise Industry Generates $6.3 Billion Dollars in Florida in 2010 PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 27 July 2011 20:26

port of miamiCruise ships in Florida generated $6.3 billion in direct spending in 2010, resulting in 123,255 jobs paying $5.4 billion in income, according to a report by Cruise Lines International Association.

Business activity at Port Canaveral — the state’s second-busiest cruise port — generated 13,093 jobs, $648.8 million in wages and $1.1 billion in revenue in 2009, a Canaveral Port Authority study released in June 2010 found. Last year, the port reported a profit of nearly $6.1 million, up from $923,627 in 2009.

Nationwide, the industry generated $37.85 billion of gross output, a 7.8 percent increase over last year, said the July 26 report. Florida accounts for 60 percent of all U.S. embarkation.

Industry direct expenditures with U.S.-based businesses increased by 5 percent to $18 billion in 2010, resulting in the direct employment of 140,359 workers, an increase of 4.4 percent, who earned $5.84 billion, up 6.5 percent.

Rolls Royce Loses $24 M Suit to Carnival PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 20 July 2011 20:17

Carnival Cruise Lines recently secured a $24 million verdict against Rolls-Royce, which was found guilty of fraud by a unanimous jury.

Rolls-Royce marketed its Mermaid pod propulsion system to Carnival for operation on its largest and most prestigious ship, the Queen Mary II. The jury found that at the time Rolls-Royce presented its pod to Carnival, Rolls-Royce knew the pod was defective and not fully developed.

Carnival argued that Rolls-Royce rushed into the market to beat its competitors and sold an untested product that failed throughout the cruise industry. It further contended that Rolls-Royce made money not only on the sale of the pods, but also each time that the bearings on the pods had to be replaced. It claimed that Rolls-Royce refused to pay for any of the replacement costs and made money off the repairs, forcing it to file suit.

The judge and jury agreed with Carnival. US District Judge Patricia Seitz said that the jurors asked her why the case ever went to trial: "The first question they had was why didn't these people settle when they have to work together." Seitz also stated that she regarded the trial as a potential "bellweather for lawsuits" filed by other cruise lines that also found fault with Rolls-Royce's pod system.

Marshall Tucker Band and ZZ Top take to the high seas PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 15 July 2011 16:46

mtbThis December, southern rockers the Marshall Tucker Band will be hitting the seas as they co-headline the annual Rock Legends Cruise, benefiting the Native American Heritage Association (NAHA). The band will share headlining duties with the legendary ZZ Top, as they set sail on the Royal Caribbean Cruise.

“That boat is going to be rockin’ for three or four days,” MTB’s lead vocalist and founding member, Doug Gray, tells Ultimate Classic Rock. “It’s going to be a great time. We’ve all got three shows each in different locations on the boat, plus I get a three and a half hour jam session. It is going to be one hell of a party on the Atlantic!”

The ship will depart from Ft. Lauderdale on Dec. 1, returning back from the four-day Bahamian cruise on Dec. 4. Joining the Marshall Tucker Band and ZZ Top on this year’s cruise will be George Thorogood & The Destroyers, John Kay & Steppenwolf, Dickey Best & Great Southern, Foghat, Molly Hatchet, Johnny Winter, The Edgar Winter Band, and The Outlaws, and many others.

The ship is scheduled to head to stops in Bahamian cities Coco Cay and Nassau, all while passengers are entertained with the cruise’s main attraction — the live performances.

The unprecedented cruise will benefit Native American Heritage Association’s mission to provide emergency assistance and self-help programs to the Sioux Native Americans living on reservations in South Dakota.

Enchantment of the Seas Passengers Complain of Bermuda Transportation PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 03 May 2011 16:25

Angry tourists have called the public transport system “a complete joke” after being welcomed to Bermuda with an hour's wait.

Passengers on-board the Enchantment of the Seas were yesterday eager to visit the Island's sights such at Gibbs Hill Lighthouse, Horseshoe Bay and the Crystal Caves.

But minutes after arriving at King's Wharf, Dockyard, they came face-to-face with the stark reality of Bermuda's timetable cuts.

One woman complained: “How the heck do you get out of this place?” as hundreds of tourists faced lengthy waits at the bus and ferry stops.

There were angry scenes as tourists were told there wouldn't be any ferries for at least an hour as “it was lunch” and they'd have to wait “up to half an hour” for a bus.

Tourists complained about the “lack of organisation” and “rude staff” as they repeatedly asked how they were supposed to get to their chosen destinations.
