The article informs that ferry and cruise passengers could face tighter security measures following the attacks in London after the world's largest shipping register increased its level of alert at British ports, putting it on a par with Iraq. European directives, expected to become law in 2007, could herald airport-style checks on ship passengers. British authorities say security levels are being kept under review after Panamanian registered ships were told they require additional security measures at British ports, possibly including guards.
