Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) announced this week that the IMO (International Maritime Organization) has implemented three additional safety-related policies from the 2012 Global Cruise Industry Operational Safety Review.
All ten policies from the Review have now been included in formal IMO standards specific to Passenger Ship Safety. The policies include navigational and muster drill rules.
“As a result of our relentless focus on passenger safety and comfort and our ongoing mission of continuous improvement in shipboard operations, cruising remains one of the safest vacation experiences available today,” said Christine Duffy, president and CEO of CLIA.
An operational safety review was conducted after the sinking of Costa Concordia last January.
