This week's Guests on TravelTalkRADIO

Important Update: Coverage of Major Legislation to Improve Safety on Cruise Ships

United States Senator John Kerry and Congresswoman Doris Matsui have introduced legislation supporting CRUISE LINE SAFETY. For many of you who have not followed this story of the perseverance of members of the International Cruise Victims Association, I invite you to become aware and involved.

The Cruise Vessel Security and Safety Act of 2009, if passed, will provide for transparency in reporting crimes, improving crime scene response, improving security training procedures and enforcing safety and environmental standards including waste management.

We had much interest in our program on April 5, 2009 when Ken Carver joined me to talk about his daughter who disappeared while at sea. Mr. Carver, is the founder of the International Cruise Victims Association. His story is not unlike hundreds of others.

As a follow-up, we have asked maritime and cruise law attorney, James (Jim) Walker to join us this week and discuss what many are calling a serious threat to passengers on the high seas.

If you live in the United States and you want to be heard on this matter, we have provided links to letters that can be sent to your Senator and to your Congressman. Send the attached document to your Senator and Send this document to your Congressman.

Don't miss this week's interview with Special Guest, Cruise Law Attorney James (Jim) Walker.
Maritime and Cruise Law Attorney joins Sandy to discuss a serious problem that is most often crimes against women and children. And  and they have many times gone notice by the Cruise lines.

Is it true that prosecution of crimes against female passengers at sea is practically non-existent?
