No one takes a cruise vacation thinking that they are going to be injured or sexually assaulted. In fact, due to much clever marketing by the cruise industry, may people actually think that cruising is safer than taking other kinds of vacations, or even staying home. But, this is not true.
There have been a number of dangerous situations involving cruise ships in recent years including fires, cruise ships sinking, passengers going missing, sexual assaults and rapes, and theft. A Canadian researcher found that the incidence of sexual assault aboard cruise ships is at least 50% higher than on land in Canada.
