International Passenger Bill of Rights

Did you know that after the Costa Concordia disaster, the cruise industry, Cruise Lines International Association, CLIA adopted a Passenger Bill of Rights to ensure passenger safety, comfort and care?  I did not know about it myself.    If you are interested here is a link to it.

I heard of it.   The Cruise industry is very quick to self regulate after something bad happens,  they do this so they are in control of it and countries do not put laws on the books that would be more restrictive of the industry.

I don't think this is going to stop US Congress from passing more laws.  Sometimes, they just can't help themselves :/

I'd heard about it, but I don't care about it.  And I don't care that I'm apathetic about it. If they ask you to read it, like your cruise contract, would you ?  I didn't read my mortgage contract.

Believe it or not, the above is not sarcasm.

Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion.  Thanks for sharing yours.  I enjoyed hearing your perspective on it.  Honestly, I have not read it fully nor do I intend to either.  But, if I ran into an issue on a cruise, at least I would know where to go for answers.  Lets hope that neither of us will ever need to read it.

I think they need a video of it out....... maybe a music video to make it more then a dry read ?
