New Law Requires Cruise Lines To Publicize All Crimes Committed On Board offers a piece on the new law regarding crimes on cruise lines.

Cruise lines will now be mandated by law to publicize and provide details on all crimes committed on their ships.

A new provision of the Coast Guard reauthorization bill, signed into law Dec. 18, also stipulates that cruise companies post information about crimes that are alleged or under current investigation, reports Cruise Critic. The Department of Transportation will host a website to be updated quarterly where consumers can check out details of the reported crimes including names of the perpetrators, both passenger and crew member offenders.

  1. Ah, that seems to be a problem if allegations and investigations are being reported. Perhaps it would be better to report confirmed and adjudicated crimes. But that might just be my former LDO/JAGC mind complicating the issue.
