Royal Carribean talks to "A Current Affair"

Royal Carribean Corporate
Talks to A Current Affair

From their corporate headquarters in Miami, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines breaks its silence on camera for the first time on tonight’s ‘A Current Affair’ to go on record, against the advice of the FBI, about the disappearance of newlywed George Smith from one of their cruise ships eight weeks ago (syndicated, check local listings for station and time).

“I believe you [‘A Current Affair’] are one of the few programs who are trying to cover this story in a fair and balanced way. And for that reason, we decided to come on your show,” says Lynn Martenstein, Vice President of Corporate Communications for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, who claims there has been “a lot of misinformation” surrounding the disappearance of Mr. Smith.

Talking only with ‘A Current Affair,’ Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines answers questions about cleaning up the bloody scene -- who and when, their reason why security guards never entered the cabin of George and Jennifer Smith even after complaints of noise heard that fateful night, and about their attempts to contact the family of the missing groom. ‘A Current Affair’ also learns the latest in the FBI’s investigation and to what extent Royal Caribbean has cooperated.

George Allen Smith vanished eight weeks ago. The young newlywed from Connecticut was on a 12-day honeymoon cruise with his brand new bride, Jennifer, following a picture perfect wedding in Newport, Rhode Island. The couple was halfway through the cruise on the night of July 4th between Greece and Turkey when tragedy struck.
