Salvage task force to be formed
A government-civilian task force for technical analysis of how to salvage the "Sewol" may begin work as soon as this week. The government was reviewing plans to form a task force comprising government officials and civilian experts. Participation from civilian experts was likely to be necessary while alvage companies were unlikely to be included in the task force as such organizations may lack objectivity. The technical review would require time due to the adverse conditions in the location of the wreck off Jindo Island in the South Jeolla Province. The search for the missing passengers was ended on Nov. 11 with nine passengers still unaccounted for. Although the government was now considering forming a task force, it had yet to decide whether the sunken ferry will actually be recovered. The central response team will take decisions regarding the management of the ship including salvaging after collecting opinions from families of the missing, experts and technical review. Oceans Minister Lee Ju-young emphasized on Nov 12 at the National Assembly that no decision on salvaging the vessel has been made. Factors likely to affect the decision include the area’s fast currents and large differences in high and low tides that hampered the search for the missing. In addition, the time and cost of salvaging the vessel may cause some controversy. It was estimated that salvaging the ship was likely to cost more than $90.1 million and take more than a year.

 Crown Princess  (Passenger Ship > Cruise Ship)

Cruise cancellation no option for Princess Cruises
The "Crown Princess" docked in Los Angeles on Nov 16 to drop off its passengers ready for another cruise to leave port on the same day in spite of the norovirus outbreak on the ship. As a result the ship had to be sanitized before new passengers were allowed on board. The CDC had to meet the ship in port to conduct a series of tests and to evaluate the response from staff to see if the action they carried out was in guidance with the Centers for Disease Control.
