This violence is senseless and needs to stop so that our families, friends and colleagues can feel safe. I can assure you that the cruise industry is doing everything in its power to ensure the well-being of its passengers. You can read from a few articles published this week that calls have been cancelled in Nice by major lines. You may have heard that one by one, the cruise lines have pulled out of Istanbul. Security both on and off the ships is extremely tight. Security checks include underwater surveillance and close monitoring of provisions being loaded in port. Additionally, it is no secret that the cruise lines engage federal agencies to vet passengers prior to embarkation. If you have cruised, you surely noticed uniformed security guards throughout the vessels. Many of these crew members have previously served in the armed forces and are engaged to handle any onboard disruption.
Remember the advantages of booking an incentive onboard a cruise ship with its unique ability to reposition at a moment’s notice. Perhaps it will help you make a case for putting your next group onboard a spectacular “floating resort".
