In light of the recent tragedies by two different ships in the past two months, Costa Concordia, and Costa Allegra, I felt that this was a topic hard to ignore. There have been countless articles, TV interviews and blogs written about these two ships, and the cruise line itself. I am saddened by the needless loss of life, and my heartfelt condolences go to all those affected.
Cruising has never been safer and two separate, awful events such as these are incredibly rare. In fact, there are approximately 26 new ships to be launched over the next two years, all built to International Maritime Organization standards and are equipped with up-to-date safety features and protocols. The safety and security of guests and cruise line crew is the highest priority to all cruise lines operations, big or small.
Please let me know if you would like any more information on a specific cruise. I am here to provide you with resources and information to help you prepare for your next journey on one of these beautiful ships.
