Cruise Vessel Security and Safety Act of 2010
There is nothing more important to us than the safety of our guests. Comprehensive, fleet-wide security practices have been in place for many years, which include the reporting of alleged crimes to the FBI.
As a result of the Cruise Vessel Security and Safety Act of 2010, statistics for cruise ship crime allegations are posted on the internet for public viewing.
Public reporting requirements, mandated by this law, are unique to the cruise industry and similar requirements do not exist for other travel suppliers such as airlines, hotels and theme parks.
The statistics, cited within the U.S. Coast Guard’s web site, represent crime allegations in different categories occurring on cruise ships sailing from North America, which must be reported in accordance to the Cruise Vessel Security and Safety Act of 2010. These statistics can be viewed at http://www.uscg.mil/hq/cg2/cgis/CruiseLine.asp.
This website can also be accessed via Carnival.com by proceeding to the global footer on each page. Under the Legal Notices section, visitors will find the Incident Reporting Statistics link that will take them to the USCG web site where this information will be maintained.
