New Laws Call for On Board Crimes to Be Made Public
Have you ever thought about possible crime occurring on board a ship? Most cruisers don’t. But as cruise ships become ever larger and now carry as many passengers as some small towns, crime on board should not be overlooked. Crime aboard cruise ships is not a topic that is openly discussed on the news or throughout the cruise industry, but it does occur. And although cruise lines would prefer to hide the stats, Cruisers have the right to know what has happened on board their ship prior to leaving port. Thanks to a recently passed law, vacationers will now know have access to crime statistics.
Contrary to popular belief, river cruising is not exclusive to Europe. Most of the world’s great cities have emerged along the shores of mighty rivers and today river cruising has expanded to travel the world’s great rivers. There are opportunities to explore rivers all across the globe, from the Yangtze River in China to the Irrawaddy river in Burma. There are also river cruises in the USA and South America, with routes along the Mississippi and the Amazon rivers. River cruises offer the opportunity to explore territory which is often thought of as the remit of backpackers, in a luxurious relaxed, leisurely and safe way.
