Voyages of Discovery Complaint - Notorious Accused Pedophile Priest Allowed Onboard
FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA -- Our family was horrified to learn that the most notorious pedophile priest from the LA Archdiocese was confirmed on the Discovery Grand South American sailing from Barbados on January 3, 2011. The Chairman of the company was contacted in early December with a complaint and concern for passenger safety, and he wrote back that "we would be unable to prevent any passenger boarding our vessel unless their behaviour at the time of boarding causes concern." How does this situation--having this man in a confined area in close proximity to elderly women and children not a cause for concern.
Families of passengers and the passengers themselves deserve to know that the cruise line, Voyages of Discovery, have their safety and well-being as their #1 priority. We are hugely disappointed at the response from the cruise line, and will let you decide for yourself whether this is the kind of company with which you want to do business knowing the person you are sitting next to at the captain's dinner may be one of the most notorious accused pedophile priests in America.
