Abstract

From the popular 1970s television show The Love Boat, the modern cruise industry was born. Today’s mega-ships are the size of small cities and, as with any city, are faced with a multitude of problems and challenges. Crime onboard ship is one of these problems. Criminal activity onboard cruise ships runs the spectrum from minor issues such as petty theft to major Class 1 crimes such as sexual assault and murder. However, very little is really known about the criminal activity that takes place aboard ship. This paper reviews the four major types of crime about today’s cruise ships
