Harassment / Sexual Assault
Today cruise ships are much like floating cities. Like typical cities, cruise ships suffer from the same problems of crime, sexual assault, police brutality, theft, battery or drug or alcohol overdose. Cruise ship security must be properly trained to competently deal with all of the foregoing problems. Often such problems still occur on board the cruise ship due to the negligence of the cruise line. Such negligence could be due to hiring employees with prior incidents of sexual assault, inadequate training of security personnel, inadequate policies or procedures, failure to follow policy or procedures or other security lapses.
Many on board incidents involve injuries caused by other passengers, family members, traveling partners or even self-inflicted injuries, whether negligent or intentional. Often alcohol is involved and the potential plaintiff’s conduct is questionable at best. An injured plaintiff may be embarrassed or think that because he or she was inebriated, the cruise line would bear no responsibility. Nevertheless, cruise lines must anticipate that passengers will become drunk and rowdy and must deal with such situations in a reasonable manner with due regard for the protection of their passengers.
