Of course, this is just an opinion of my 17 cruises, but I applaud
the comments of DTW, Norm, etc....regarding oversexed crew
members acting up and assaulting passengers. Not that it has never
happened, but from what we read...rarely happens.
It's easy to see why headlines get out of control if they take
the same thought process as Gambit.
I myself, find cruise ships safe, well lit, cameras everywhere,
the staff very friendly. When we travel with teens, we tell them,
especially at night to stay together. Many of these same young
women walk city streets to school, shopping, malls, etc. where
crime statistics are incredibly high.
I hope I am not naive, but I just feel safe on cruise ships.
