This week, our social media presence reached a milestone.
The Cruise Law News Facebook page reached 100,000 "likes."
The majority of our Facebook fans are from outside of the U.S. We have tens of thousands of crew members who have "liked" us. We receive a great deal of information from crew members regarding a wide range of issues, like cruise ship fires, engine failures, man-overboard situations and the tough working conditions which crew members face.
Thank you very much for reading our page and providing information to us! Our success would not be possible without the support of crew members on cruise ships around the world!
We have over 11,900 people following us on Twitter and many thousands of people who subscribe to our daily blog, Cruise Law News, via e-mail & RSS subscriptions.
Over 6,250,000 pages of Cruise Law News are projected to be read this year.
The motto of our blog is "everything the cruise lines don't want you to know."
No, we are not a travel site with glossy photos of happy crew members and smiling passengers enjoying a dream vacation cruise. The fact that millions of people are reading a critical blog by a lawyer (lawyers often write boring, stuffy articles) reflects that there are a lot of things that happen on cruises which the public wants to know and the cruise lines want to keep secret.
Thanks for reading us! And thanks to the many passengers and crew members who have sent us tips, photos and videos of things like hiding food from the USPH inspectors or dumping garbage at sea which no one would otherwise know about . . .
