With 2 missing people on RCL belived to have been tossed overboard on 2 different cruises how come the cruise ships are not adding more cameras to the outside of the ship or some kind of alarm that would go off if a large object such as a human falls over board? Then maybe these tragedy would have not happened. Also do they do through back round checks on the cruise ship staff?
There are more and more cameras on ships now and even the older ones are adding cameras. There are so many that they cannot watch all of them at once and of course they can only have them in public areas. These same cameras have in fact been used to show when some people were last seen and in what area. The instances you are talking about unfortunately occurred in the cabins or balconies which are private and no cameras will ever be allowed there. Next time you are on a ship look around real close and you will notice lots of cameras. They are pretty unobtrusive and you might slap yourself in the head and think, 'dang, I never noticed that before!".
Oh I saw the cameras Jim ,and I understand about balconys being private but when you got a guy being tossed off the ship on RCL a camera placed on a lower deck near the water would have shown the man falling into the sea, no? Maybe then he could have been rescued perhaps. Motion detectors, heat sensors, something that picks up a human falling overboard. Not a camera inside my stateroom but something that keeps track of the outside of the ship.
