Comments I HAVE WRITTEN A LETTER TO THE PRESIDENT OF WORLDWIDE SAIL & DIVE (WWS&D) TO COMMENT ON SEVERAL PROBLEMS WITH THE PHILIPPINE SIREN. SMOKING WAS THE MAJOR ONE BUT THERE WERE SEVERAL OTHERS, AS WELL. IN A REPLY LETTER TO ME THE CEO OF WWS&D TRIED TO PASS ON THE SMOKING ISSUE AS SOMETHING FOR THE SHIP'S "TOUR GUIDE" TO HANDLE. I QUICKLY SET HIM STRAIGHT THAT THAT WAS AN ADMISISTRATION PROBLEM, THAT SHE DID HER BEST WITHOUT A CLEARLY DEFINED SMOKING POLICY, AND THAT HE SHOULD NOT PASS THE BUCK BUT ISSUE SPECIFIC RULES THAT COVERED THE GUESTS AND CREW!
