  1. CRUISE SHIPS BREAKING FROM MOORING LINES This is a very dangerous situation for guest, crew, and cruise ship. These day's these vessels are hugh and wind catchers The mooring lines are of course made of material which can handle safe mooring. But, when strong winds appear they are like big sails and the mooring are getting under high pressure and can break. What if guests are just using the gangway, or what dammage can ocuure when the ship is sailing away not under control. The cruise industry is a muly miljon business involving a lot of money. But pressing the ports of call for better reliable mooring systems : It looks that nobody is interested, while safety has high standards on cruise lines. In our port of Rotterdan we already have solved the problem with a fantastic invention. The largest container ships of the world, who moore in our always very windy ports near the sea, are moored now with a Dutch invention, which keep mooring lines at place , alway's what ever the weather is. The last breaking of mooring lines from a Cunard cruise ship, which lucky had no victims is an example : You can make the ships as big as you can, but secure the mooring lines like we do in Rotterdam do not break, and the system is there.
