It's really sad that these things happen, anywhere, but specially on cruises. I worked for 2 years for a major cruise line and something that seems to be really hushed are cases of sexual harrasment from passengers to crew members. They don't want the bad publicity and we're from third world countries anyway, so who cares (I guess that's what they think). Besides, they make it into a "he said, she said" thing. But yeah, this is a reality and maybe having a government official on board (like air marshals) would help. We had one in Alaska to oversee environmental issues. Why not have one to check on security issues as well?

HOW CAN IT BE "HE SAID, SHE SAID" WHEN THE CHILD IS 15?

I SPENT MY CHILDHOOD ON CRUISE SHIPS. WE WHERE ON THE

MAIDEN CRUISE OF THE HMS CANBEARA IN 1962. YOU HAVE TO

BE CAREFUL.
