    Jerry Hamilton’s comments were great. I will continue to cruise with family and friends because cruising IS safe! The cruise industry is NOT “disaster-prone” as some have said!

    The media (and lawyers) reminds me of the V V Brown’s song “Shark in the Water” as long as there is plenty to feed on they are not letting this go. Even if they get the facts wrong.

    I agree with Scott. Jerry Hamilton made a lot of sense. Though I was impressed that Jim Walker seemed to have a reasonable approach as well. Lawyers for both sides will see huge paydays from this tragedy. From this episode, its clear both sides will be well represented.
