Cruise industry introduces new safety procedures

Following the Costa Concordia cruise ship accident in January when the ship ran aground off the coast of Italy, the worldwide cruise industry has adopted a new emergency drill policy. The new policy requires an emergency drill with all embarking passengers before the ship departs from port. Previously, cruise ships were required to hold the drill within 24 hours of departure. The Concordia’s drill was scheduled for the day after the ship capsized; an operational safety review after the incident led to the new policy. The Cruise Lines International Association, the European Cruise Council and the Passenger Shipping Association all support the new emergency guidelines.
