Marjmehl asks, "Are resort hotels required to do this stuff? If not, why should cruise ships?"
No and here's your anwser. Its not the same thing at all.
"Whereas obtaining reliable crime-related cruise data from governmental sources can be difficult, because multiple countries may be involved when crime occurs on the high seas, including the flag country for the vessel, the country of citizenship of particular passengers, and any countries having special or maritime jurisdiction;
Whereas due to the absence of law enforcement officials on ocean voyages, it can be difficult or impossible for criminal investigators to immediately secure an alleged crime scene on a cruise ship, recover evidence of an onboard offense, and identify or interview potential witnesses to the alleged crime; "
If one of yours was a victim of a crime at sea, would you wnat it to be properly investigated or not?
Landlocked in Denver, but cruisin every chance we get.
