Default Patriot Maiden Voyage

Did anyone else have the experience of sailing on the Patriot Dec 9th? Is there a quality control board for cruise lines?

I wasn't on the ship, but can you tell us what happened? CLIA (Cruise Lines International Association) and ICCL (International Council of Cruise Lines) are the two major industry associations.

If you take a look at the United States Lines message boards in the Ships area of the message boards, there are some very negative postings from folks who were aboard the first voyage of Patriot -- nonfunctioning toilets and crew with no training and little interest. I'm very surprised, since the head folks at United States Lines have a lot of experience and these problems should never have happened.

I expect that eventually everything will be sorted out, but I wouldn't take this ship for months based on what I've read.
