Spender Nui,

After you open this link click the video link "Cruise Ship Captain Suspected of Drinking" in the article.

I'm obviously disappointed that an officer for a cruise line that's as conscientious about safety as Celebrity would be involbed in this type of incident, but such things do happen. Celebrity clearly responded appropriately when the details became known.

The staff captain assumed command, said Michael Sheeham, spokesman for parent company Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.

The staff captain may well have the good fortune of being in the right place at the right time. He's now in command, even if temporarily, and thus has a chance to prove his ability to function as master. It will be very difficult for the company to deny him the permanent promotion if he performs well even if another staff captain might have been more senior.

That said, the following sentence from the article is very interesting.

Federal law considers someone operating a vessel on the waters of the United States legally intoxicated if his blood alcohol concentration level exceeds .040.

That standard is half the most stringent standard for driving an automobile here in the States.

Norm.
