There was a special on CNN last week and one segment was about cruise ship security. It showed divers in Miami examining the every inch of the underwater hulls of cruise ships. They do random dives so that no one knows when the inspections will be done.

It also said that background checks are done on every passenger.

I know that the divers were doing the inspections before the UK incident, but I imagine things have been beefed up since then.

Naturally, a ship could be attacked. So could a plane, a mall, our water supplies, etc. Hopefully your family will realize that we can't live in fear. I feel that taking a cruise is every bit as safe as any other form of vacation and ten times more fun!!

Go for the cruise and enjoy. You'll be glad you did!

If I am not mistaken, I think what Mary B. wants to know is if there were any changes to cruiseline security in the wake of the attempted 8-10 terrorist attacks?

I suppose to answer Mary B.'s question, one would have a had to return from a cruise that departed after 8-10 (August 10th of this year). As well as have taken a cruise before 8-10. Then be able to compare the security, and recognize any differences.

And as I noted earlier, they may have indeed made some changes but they are transparent to the passengers and were not publicized.

Living in fear must be a terrible thing.

thank you all for your feedback. I agree with most everything discussed here. I do not live in fear and I am willing and ready to cruise again. Some of my family members are not convinced however. I most likely will go without them. I love to travel and find cruising the most relaxing of all vacations. We also enjoy hiking, water sports etc.on the excursions. The best of both worlds for me. See you on the seas!
