Happy New Year! And Thanks for Reading!

We take the beginning of this new year to thank our readers for following us over the past twelve months.

The motto of this site is "everything cruise lines don't want you to know." We rely on our passenger-and crew-member friends to keep us informed when things go wrong on the high seas and in ports of call outside of the U.S. 

We particularly appreciate those of you who have taken the time to stay in touch with us over Cruise Law News the course of this year. We have been kept informed of power losses, missing passengers and crew members, increasingly difficult conditions facing crew members and medevacs-at-sea. 

I have been in Miami, rightfully called the cruise ship capital of the year, for the past thirty years. To say that the cruise industry has grown considerably over the last several decades may be an understatement! Cruise ships have becone increasingly larger and larger over the years. Unfortunately, the legal rights of hard-working crew members have substantially declined over this time period.

1,665,242 different people viewed 5,636,038 pages of this blog this year, so thanks for following us!

We wish everyone the best of health and success for 2017!
