Peter Shanks mentioned CLIA (CRUISE LINES INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION INC).
The offical CLIA website can be found at http://www.cruising.org/
Thank you Salacia,
I must confess that as soon as I read the most welcome post by Mr Shanks I did scoot across to that site but in my ignorance I failed miserably to post this link
I am guessing it was because of the woeful standard of lifeboat training that this organisation deems acceptable.!!
but this is NOT the thread to continue that debate.
I would however very respectfully ask Mr Shanks to look at this policy and ask if it is acceptable and at a level he believes will be good enough should an emergency ever arise.
