Crime and safety on cruise ships

The Miami Herald is reporting that cruise ship operators have released information on cruise safety because of a Congressional hearing on cruise ship safety next week.

Cruise ship safety has come under scrutiny following the disappearance of Connecticut honeymooner George Smith, 26, who was reported missing from Royal Caribbean’s Brilliance of the Seas last summer. The FBI is investigating the possibility of murder, and Smith’s family has threatened to file a wrongful-death lawsuit against Royal Caribbean.

I would have guessed that theft would have been the most sommon crime, but sexual misconduct ranging from inappropriate touching to rape accounted for the vast majority of reported crimes.
