Hearing on Cruise Passenger Protection Act scheduled for July 22

By Tom Stieghorst
The U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation has set a July 22 hearing on the Cruise Passenger Protection Act drafted by committee chairman Jay Rockefeller (D.-W.Va.)

The act, which was introduced last summer, would direct the government to set standards for simple disclosure of the terms of a cruise ticket.

It would also provide for an advisory committee on cruise consumer protection and a passenger complaint hotline, and require a website for statistics on reports of missing persons and crimes on cruise ships.
