I personally know, someone, who's daughter was attacked on a ship, and they closed ranks immediately. The feeling of helplessness, the family felt was heart breaking.
I also hope there is not an across the board bashing, but if you have read any reports of sexual crimes against passengers on ships, there is a common, thread, lets fix this fast, and drop off the offender at the next port
This is what was presented to the family I know...how many free cruises will it take to forget this, and the man was off in the next port..This family decided to take another course, through the court system.
You do need to be pro active, when traveling anywhere, that goes without saying, but sometimes, bad things happen to good people.
I am anxious to see how he deals with this sensitive subject.
