(NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) — Is it still alright to go cruising?

AAA’s Jim Lehman joined John Shumway on the KDKA Morning News to talk about travel after the return of the Carnival cruise ship Triumph, which spent five days drifting at sea without power.

Lehman said that the chance of an event like this happening is slim.

He pointed out that thousands of ships are cruising around the world at anytime, it’s just when something like this happen and is in the media, it’s made to look like a more prominent issue that it really is.

He said that first time cruise passengers are asking about this problems because they don’t have prior experiences.

However, experienced cruise passengers have not had a knee jerk reaction to this because of past travels.
