The Chronicle Herald in Canada reports today that a crew member on a Carnival cruise ship which that visited Halifax was arrested and charged with smuggling child pornography into Canada.

Carnival Cruise Child PornographyThe newspaper indicates that 26-year-old crew member Nyoman Putra, an Indonesian working as an assistant room steward on the Carnival Glory, allegedly had child pornography on a laptop computer.

Canada Border Services Agency officers were inspecting crew members getting off the cruise ship when they nabbed the Carnival crew member at Pier 22 in Halifax.  Canada’s border agents do a good job catching crew members who try and enter the country with child pornography.  

The Canadian newspaper writes that Putra is the second cruise ship employee to be charged with having child pornography so far this year in Halifax.  In May, a Filipino who was an assistant waiter on the Costa Atlantica was sentenced to four months in jail for possession and importation. 

Putra was an assistant cabin attendant.  It should concern any parent who cruises with their children to think of pedophile cabin attendants coming into the stateroom.

Parents don’t like to think about these things, and the cruise lines and travel agents hate to admit these things happen.  Consider the following articles:
