CLIA Unveils More New Safety Policies for Global Cruise Industry

Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) and the European Cruise Council (ECC) unveiled three additional cruise safety policies to address issues related to lifejacket stowage on newly-constructed ships, the securing of heavy objects onboard ships, and the synchronization of bridge operating procedures within commonly owned and operated fleets. The two cruise organizations claim these policies exceed current international regulatory requirements and are further outcomes of the Cruise Industry Operational Safety Review, which was launched in January 2012, immediately after the sinking of Costa Concordia off the coast of Italy.
