I agree with Mike-- You don't " fall " off a ship unless you're doing something stupid like climbing on the rail, sitting on the rail , etc.
As far as raising the height of the rail, why not just go ahead and enclose the entire ship in a cocoon of plexiglass --that way no one could get out to go over the side. But then, someone would worm their way into the engine room and get killed or injured and blame it on the cruise line.
I'm not a hard hearted person--I'm kind to kids, animals and old folks but if someone is dumb enough or such a danger to himself as to " fall " off a cruise ship, I'd much rather he do it there than be on the highway or in public somewhere where he may take innocent people with him / her.
