Schumer calls for
cruise ship bill of rights

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 3/17/2013 6:15:57 PM

Sen. Charles Schumer is calling on the cruise ship industry to adopt a "bill of rights" to guarantee passengers certain protections while aboard their ships. The New York Democrat says Sunday he´ll be asking industry leaders to voluntarily adopt the guidelines which include guarantees that ships have sanitary conditions, back-up power, medical staff and other standard procedures. Schumer´s plan would also include the right to a full refund if a trip is abruptly canceled due to mechanical problems. In the past two months at least three ships carrying US passengers on cruises have experienced problems, including power failures.

Most cruise ships are not registered in the US, mainly for the over regulating done by congress. I doubt that Chunky will have any luck even if he passes the bill. The most the US can do is prevent these ships coming to our ports and I seriously doubt they will do that.

I am surprised, watching interviews, how many people say they would cruise again and on the same carrier. The market should control this. Lots of cruise ships around the world (some illegally dumping their waste and sewage - that is where governments should step in) and lots of people willing to pay to play. People should read their tickets, get lawyers if they feel the need, but keep the damned government out of it. They have enough to do. Or rather, they have enough they should be doing. They can step in if terrorists climb on board.

I´ve cruised just three times - Caribbean for two weeks, Mexico for four days, Hawaii for a week. I should have stopped after the first one, but friends wanted to go. Didn´t have any problems. Did see problems and were told by the crew they were problems from other cruise ships. Plus at that time there was a big push worldwide to stop cruise ships from this disgusting practice.

Once you sign your cruise ticket there is no need for a lawyer anymore no matter what happens or how bad or unhealthy the ship might become. It is a contract in which you have given up all legal rights, written by and for the cruise line´s benefit. You have no rights left.

considering that all cruise lines are foreign flagged, this is a nothing burger and if Schumer thinks he can get it passed, let him try. It might keep him from meddling in issues that really affect the rest of us.

The US gov´t has absolutely positively no power or control over cruise lines´ vessels except for inspection of operational systems by the Coast Guard. Read the fine print on the ticket - it´s a contract. And then if you´re happy with the details, cruise away. The market will deal with Carnival. I predict that if they don´t make some major changes they won´t be in business in a year. Then again, my crystal ball has a short in it. Hasn´t been working right for a spell.

I still wouldn´t cruise - even if it were free. But that´s just my own personal quirk...

It´s a machine,you idiot, and a very complex machine. People who take boat rides are putting themselves at the mercy of these mechanical behemoths. They should expect them to break down and to break down a lot. It´s a wonder that any of them get back to port on schedule. Navy ships and merchant ships are a whole different category. Not near the complexity.

The cruise ship companies are there to make money, and thus do everything that they can to keep their ships from breaking down and disrupting their cruise schedule which causes when to loose money.

But because cruise ships are complex electronic and mechanical operations they sometimes do break down. When that has happened in the past, it appears that the cruise ship companies have refunded the price of the cruise to the passengers and have offered discounts on a future cruise.

So why does the government have to create a special bill of rights that would interfere with a lawful commercial contract between passengers and cruise ship companies?

Just ahead of a possible Hillary run for the presidency, the Clinton Library released a new load of documents from President Bill Clinton’s years in the White House. One of those documents attempts to explain Hillary´s "vast right-wing conspiracy" claim in which the Clinton administration accused Republican staffers of colluding with "extremists" on the Internet to hurt the Clintons. On January 27, 1998, Hillary Clinton appeared on NBC´s Today Show. During her interview with Matt Lauer, she claimed that a "vast right-wing conspiracy" had been trying to destroy her husband "since the day he announced for president." That interview drew

In so doing, he discovered "people who are often far from the stereotypical vision of the American ´gun-nut.´" He found a teenager named Elizabeth, who posed with a Walther handgun "in front of a floral wallpaper backdrop."

As the nation awaits Hillary Clinton´s decision of whether or not she will run for president in 2016, a cache of 7,500 pages of newly released documents from Bill Clinton´s years in the White House show some familiar political themes. One revelation is that Bill Clinton worried that a massive new healthcare scheme would cause Americans to lose their insurance. In 1993, the President allowed his wife, first lady Hillary Clinton, to become the face of an Obamacare-like takeover of the nation´s healthcare system. The plan was sarcastically dubbed Hillarycare. But as these internal documents show, in what is now a

WASHINGTON AND NEW YORK - In September 2001, as the U.S. reeled from the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Vladimir Putin supported Washington´s imminent invasion of Afghanistan in ways that would have been inconceivable during the Cold War. He agreed that U.S. planes carrying humanitarian aid could fly through Russian air space. He said the U.S. military could use airbases in former Soviet republics in Central Asia. And he ordered his generals to brief their U.S. counterparts on their own ill-fated 1980s occupation of Afghanistan. During Putin´s visit to President George W. Bush´s Texas ranch two

The exact identify of the aircraft remains a mystery, but rumours abound that it could be a secret jet. ´The photo is grainy because it was taken with a hand-held maxed-out 400mm telephoto lens through a cloud layer and then it was severely cropped to bring it up even close,´ says Jeff Templin, who took the photo on 16 April. ´There is no way to know the altitude and no way to judge its

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.
