I quoted directly from the bill. But it must have been a mistake because the bill hasn't been amended but the it changed to:
Whereas groups such as the International Cruise Victims Association, the National Center for Victims of Crime, and the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network have voiced concern about the safety of passengers and crewmembers traveling on ocean voyages: Now, therefore, be it


Resolved, That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that--

(1) the members of the International Cruise Victims Association, the National Center for Victims of Crime, and the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network are to be commended for their leadership in highlighting the problem of crimes against American citizens on cruise ships;

(2) cruise line passengers and crewmembers who become victims of crime while traveling on the high seas are often denied access to justice and support services, and Americans who are victims of crime on a cruise ship should have ready access to justice and additional steps should be taken to ensure that the perpetrators of such crimes are brought to justice;

(3) the cruise industry should provide comprehensive information to passengers about security risks and maintain necessary security personnel on each ship; and

(4) Congress should provide oversight to ensure the safety and security of American passengers.
