Victims meet for second day of congressional hearings on cruise ship safety
The family of a missing Greenwich honeymooner and other cruise ship crime victims gathered in Washington D.C. Tuesday for the second round of congressional hearings on cruise ship safety. George Allen Smith vanished from a Royal Caribbean ship while on his honeymoon last July. With Smith?s case in the spotlight, dozens of other cruise victims from all over the world have come forward. Now, together they are hoping to bring change to the industry. The group, who formed the International Cruise Victims, is calling for U.S. marshals on cruise lines, better communication between the FBI and cruise lines, and a change in legislation to require cruise lines to report crimes onboard ships.
