If the FBI investigates cases of alleged rapes, and after a whole year reports "zero rapes" on cruise ships, isn't it likely that the allegations were false? Just because someone cries wolf doesn't mean a wolf is about.

Crime on cruise ships is a serious problem. If you go to the International Cruise Victims site as well as a couple other sites that detail the horrible way crimes are dealt with on a cruise ship. Rapes, murders, assaults...not investigated and no action taken. There have been murders with solid suspects but the cleaning crew cleaned the room immediately after the body was removed and eliminated any forensic evidence.

I've been on one cruise...I won't go on another.

No, I just prefer to make broad assumptions about them. I'm not setting foot on one just to prove to myself that I'm right. If I wanted to be exposed to campylobacter and rape, I'd vacation in an alley dumpster in the big city.

FTFA: "That was also noticed by some leading advocates of cruise ship crimes."

Anyone else surprised to learn there are groups put together for the sole purpose of advocating crime while on cruise ships?

I need to get pamphlets from a few of them.

Rogue waves, norovirus and rape. Plus the captain might veer off course into shallow waters so the headwaiter can wave to his friends and run the farking ship aground.

When you go on a cruise, you don't expect a Number 6 to be pulled on you.

What could *possibly ever* go wrong on a ship that is unfettered by modern, American safety standards, manned by crew members of unknown origins from around the globe and flying under the flag of some shiathole third world nation? Why, it's global capitalism at its finest!

It's not rape. They can't refuse, you know, because of the implication.

So, you won't go on another cruise, because the one cruise you went on had a bunch of murders, rapes and assaults? What ship were you on - the MV Detroit?

For ten years I was the captain of the Explorer of the Seas, one of the largest cruise ships still in service. I was in charge of the safety and wellness of hundreds of thousands of passengers. They paid thousands of dollars for their trips and held high expectations of the voyage. When you get that many scantily clad people aboard a vessel stocked with unlimited supplies of liquor, you are bound to have rape issues. I'd guess on a typical ten day trip, we'd have twenty to thirty rapes, more if it was a speciality crew for senior citizens, which surprised me. I suppose they didn't have much to lose and were more acquainted with our procedures. What also surprised me was the level of outrage expressed by the victims. They literally expected me to turn the entire vessel around, ruining the vacations of thousands of paying customers, all because they decided to get a little too flirtatious with another passenger or a crew member. I'm sorry, but your anus/vagina isn't probably worth $250 on the open sex market, much less the cost in lost revenue, spent fuel, and refunds that we'd require to take you back to land. I always offered oars and an inflatible raft for anyone who was that concerned, though you can imagine there weren't many takers -- oh my god, physical exertion! No thanks!

To each his own, but I don't get vacation cruises.

What do you get on the ship you can't get on terra firma relatively near your house? I've got a shopping mall nearby, fancy restaurants nearby, a great waterpark not too far away, I could walk to a much fancier hotel room.

And if I want to visit a place, I want to spend more than 8 hours there. I want to relax, get away from the tourists, explore without a tour guide, go beyond the top 5 sites everyone sees. My favorite places in Europe are the ones I got to spend at least 3 nights in because I sort of got to know the place.

The loophole would seem to raise questions as to why the FBI asked lawmakers to add the language and whether that request was motivated by an industry that has, for the most part, avoided serious regulation for many years

While I don't know why the FBI would ask that crimes not be reported until AFTER they closed the file - I find it hard to believe that the cruise lines could walk into the FBI offices in Washington and say "Hey, can you all do us a favor?"

No, I just won't go on another cruise because it's more cost-effective and fun to fly to a location and stay there. I did one cruise just to do it and I was less than impressed.

there are many different kinds of vacations.
1) unique museums/sites - rome, paris, greece, london - you go there to climbs stairs and look at stuff. there is no where else on earth that you can climb the eiffle tower or notre dame

2) destination - some island beach, some mountain, some national park. once again, you go there for a very specific reason. and you can not do it from your house.

3) mindless relaxation - vegas, cruises - you dont go on these to do something. you go on these to do NOTHING. Done need to decide where to eat. Each night at main dining is different. You can sit in sun and read or not. swim or not. watch bad shows or not. gamble or not. drink, dance or not. but the key is mindless. no need to make a decision.


this mindless vacation is JUST what the doctor ordered sometimes. you have been working non-stop for 3 years and you are burned out. you just want to go sit and do NOTHING.

/Nevis - sitting and reading, looking out over the infinity pool. people bringing me drinks. NOTHING NOTHING NOTHING to decide
/paris - walking until my legs said it was time to stop. drinking and eating. walking some more
/two completely different and completely wonderful vacations
