Actually, almost all cruise vessels are registered in countries other than the United States. Cruise lines take this approach to avoid U.S. regulations, of course. Only vessels that remain in U.S. territorial waters, such as those based in Hawaii, have to be registered in the U.S. Given this information, one has to wonder..could the Carnival fire been prevented if the vessel complied with the more stringent safety standards of the U.S. Hmm...
