Norovirus...cruise NIGHTMARES...the TRUTH will SHOCK you !
I have worked on cruise ships as far back as the 60's on the old Oriana and que2. They had unionized British crews and some europeans but NOT 3rd World unclean crews like today !
Most of the live aboard workers on present cruises
are from places like the Philippines, Indonesia, India,etc
They also work on the ferries in the English channel
These people, for the most part, are NOT hygenic
Of course the highly paid pr teams employed by
the billionaire cruise companies like Carnival that
own MOST of the World's cruise lines with the
exception of Royal Caribbean will scramble to
defend themselves and deny ANY derogative
allegations about norovirus outbreaks or any other
legitimate criticisms about the negative and risky
side of cruising but sooner or later the VERITAS
TRUTH will surface depicting them as outright
falsifiers of facts and realities !
Top cruise line executives use their company's
private luxury motoryachts or gulfstream jets,etc
and would NEVER want to subject themselves or
their families to the norovirus dangers !
I don't like flying but have NEVER got ill from
Also you cannot depend on the quack-like
doctors on board who cruise because of lack
of success in private practice cruise to chase
rich, lonely women trying to escape reality,etc !
Before going on a cruise ask yourself if you
want to risk yourself and your family or friends
catching that horrible illness and being confined to
your cabin and being just another of numerous
passenger victims of the norovirus and cruise
company hyped up enticing propoganda to get
your hard earned $ !
We travelled from Miami to the Bahamas on
our own boat some years ago and we NEVER
had to worry about disentary, food poisoning
or norovirus !
I am NOT against cruising but I abhor the fact
that there are those benefiting financially from
that industry who insist on distorting the truth
about norovirus and the real causes of it which
I am convinced is the unclean crew members
who handle passengers food and cabin cleaning
As a foreign correspondent, radio shock jock
and critic I have a conscience and responsibility
to be opinionated rather than neutral on
controversial matter such as norovirus and I
stand by my words !
And now this...for those who question my expertise, credentials or credibility !
Dear Mr Martin,
I'm writing to thank you for your tremendous effort and assistance in filing regular interviews and updates on the situation in Japan for 2UE across the weekend, during what must have been a very frightening time.
Your initial interview with Stuart Bocking on Friday night blew us away - your insight, considered thoughts and evocative descriptions really impressed upon our listeners the gravity and extent of the situation confronting Japan.
I know my colleagues continued to touched base with you across the weekend on the George and Paul Show and Weekend Breakfast with John Stanley - and the feedback has been overwhelming. A number of people have made a point of saying to me this morning how compelling your interviews were, along with the content and experiences you related.
2UE really appreciates your support and assistance - our listeners were also greatly appreciative of the opportunity to hear from someone on the ground in Japan about the severity of the situation and extent of impact.
I will most definitely send you through an air check of your Friday Night interview as soon as possible - it will take me a little while to turn the audio around this morning but I just wanted to touch base first to express my gratitude for your assistance and your time.
On behalf of my colleagues, please accept our sincere thanks.
Our thoughts are with you and your family, and the nation of Japan, at this difficult time.
If there's anything we can do to be of assistance in coming days or weeks, please don't hesitate to let me know.
Dear Mr. Martin,
Thank you very much for joining us on The Larry Elder Show on April 9th, 2013. Your knowledge of the situation in North Korea was very much appreciated and gave our listeners much needed insight on what is REALLY going on at ground level.
Know that we will be contacting you in the future if/when things heat up even further with North Korea.

Thank you very much for coming on The World Today Weekend with Sean Leslie on April 3rd, 2011.
Even though you were discussing the tragedy that Japan was going through following the massive earthquake and subsequent tsunami, you brought some levity to the situation. You also shed some light some issues that our host didn’t even know about, which was wonderful not only for him, but our listeners as well.
You were very informative and allowed people here in Vancouver, BC to feel as though they were in Japan.
We would gladly have you on the show again in the future!

I'm writing on behalf of reporter Paul Martin. Paul provided live reports
for KGO Newstalk 810 AM radio in San Francisco immediately following the Japan earthquake on 3/11/11.
Paul did an excellent job of describing the initial damage reports, kept our listeners informed about the danger of nuclear fallout, and also described
the powerful aftershocks that hit while he was broadcasting live with us from his office in Tokyo.
We appreciate Paul's coverage and would not hesitatet o use him in the future.

I can tell you know what your talking about I've witnessed it too, and seen it ! YOU can also go to YOU TUBE and type in Cruise Line inspection problems.
Crazy Clown replied to you
The Truth be Told right here by Paul Martin, and he is truthfully telling it like it is , PAUL how about a good 15 to 30 minute YOU TUBE Video on this narrated by YOU telling us what your saying here !!! thanks !!
PAUL, you are exactly Correct in that assumption, as I too have witnessed 1st hand these Big Corporate Cruise Lines hiring 3rd world people from those countries, mainly Illegally,for Cheap labor reasons and no benefits for their Billion Dollar cruise liner, they have been poorly trained most of them, have inadequate skills, speak poor English or other languages can't communicate with other crew members if an Emergency breaks out, its been a DISASTER waiting to happen for a long time, and its now shedding light , soon a major Disaster will happen givin the circumstances, just a matter of time !!!
