It’s not something you like to think about but just like on land, crime too happens on cruise ships, too. This week’s news has been about the George Smith case, a man who disappeared on his honeymoon cruise back in July 2005, aboard Royal Caribbean’s Brilliance of the Seas. A follow-up “Overboard” will be on NBC’s Dateline this Friday night.
A lot of people let their guard down while cruising and think it’s safe to get crazy drunk or let their kids have full rein of the cruise ship because it’s a “safe-haven,” but that’s not always the case. I mean you can drink all-you-want and not have to drive anywhere, right?
Maritime attorney Jim Walker of Cruise Law News sat down with us and gave us “Six Tips for Staying Safe at Sea.” This interview aired in January 2011 on Cruise Radio but we think this is a good time to reinforce what could be consequences of letting your guard down.
You will want to forward this article to any frequent cruisers in your life.
