But just because something is possible doesn't mean it is probable.

San007, your theory is possible, but highly unlikely. Some sociopath could be hopping from ship to ship committing random murders for his twisted pleasure. But most murders are committed by someone with something to gain by them. Bump the husband off to gain the insurance settlement. Bump the cheating wife off in a jealous rage. One doesn't wander the decks of cruise ships and toss passengers overboard just for fun. The cost/benefit ratio isn't in his favor.

The terrorist is going to make the same cost/benefit calculation. Why toss one passenger overboard when he can walk into the dining room, blow himself up, and kill dozens of passengers? (Assuming he could smuggle the explosives on board.)

But being aware of your surroundings is always good advice.

At the same time, the probability of such an incident is so extremely low.

So go on your cruise. Eat drink and be merry. Each day is a gift. Not to be feared, but to be enjoyed.

Thank you, Dean. You're not so MEAN as the others. I am glad there is someone out there with their eyes open and their head out of the sand. I simply expressed that it was something that can't be ignored or taken lightly. I didn't mean to upset anyone nor start any rumors.
Just putting it out there as a possibility.
