Default Save another Cruise Ship!

Just a note that the legislation to save the Delta Queen will be voted on next week in congress. I called my rep today to express my views on an exemption for the boat. We all love to cruise so we should let our elected officials know that we should not lose any more cruise ships (like NCL America is in Hawaii) due to our government having a lack of integrity. The representive from Minnesotta who is trying to kill the Delta Queen voted for her exemption up to this year. He is now blocking it, co-incidently the Delta Queen was bought by a cruise company that runs a non-union crew and unions are this reps largest monetary contributars. Now I do not care what side of the aisle you are on since we all are on board with cruising...so please gie your rep a call and try to help save the Delta Queen.

Not to be frank but I don't think the NCL board would be a great board to find "save ships" campaigns.
