Cruise Ships: Examining Safety, Operations and Oversight
The National Transportation Safety Board held a public forum on cruise ship safety and oversight on March 25-26 in Washington.
The forum, Cruise Ships: Examining Safety, Operations and Oversight, reviewed the regulatory framework, ship design and fire protection, operations and corporate oversight of cruise ships. It explored some recent high-profile incidents. The forum’s goal was to encourage dialogue among industry stakeholders, regulators, and the general public to better understand cruise ship safety and oversight. Participants included regulators such as the U.S. Coast Guard, vessel owners and operators, researchers and industry groups.
