    Rep. John Mica (R-FL) is the chair of the Congressional Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.

    The Congressional Transportation and Infrastructure Committee called recent accidents or incidents involving cruise ships in foreign waters a warning signal for officials and the cruise industry to make certain U.S. cruise passengers are as safe as possible.

    Among the individuals who testified to Congress on February 29, 2012 and March 1, 2012 are Christine Duffy, president and CEO of the Cruise Lines International Association and Ross Klein, cruise industry critic.
