Hopefully, it is not a public bashing of the cruise lines themselves.

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.

why is it on the air - because is is sensationalism
- general public thinks just being on a cruise makes every one nice- sorry freaks and pervs can still go cruising and on all sorts of vacations; as well as in normal lives - you just have to be careful, be aware, have a buddy system when traveling and trust your instincts

I watch Bill O'Reilly so I am going to be interested to see if he reports "fair and balanced" or if he makes it appear that it is the only place in the world where you can get attacked;

It's amazing to me that people would consider committing these kinds of acts on a cruise. Aside from the fact that it's completely horrible and offensive and traumatizing, it's also sheer stupidity. I mean, you've got a limited and very securely contained pool of suspects; they're going to find you sooner or later.

So, did anyone watch the program? What did Billy have to say about it?



EDIT:
Oh wait... Judging from the last two replies, I'm guessing a piece on Anna Nicole Smith pushed the cruise ship sex offender segment off the program.
