The point is that women and sadly minors are not safe on land and not safe on water and this is very concerning.

Miami’s plaintiff personal injury lawyer Sean M. Cleary expresses his concern regarding the number of sexual assaults and rapes occurred on cruise ships from 2010 – 2013. Statistical data was released on NJ.com on August 2nd and posted on the websites of big cruise ship corporations like Carnival Corporation, Royal Caribbean and Norwegian Cruise Line.

According to the published statistical data not slip, trip and fall accidents or food poisoning are the most common injuries occurring on cruise ships as one should assume, but rapes and sexual assaults. One third of the victims are minors, for more information listed June 27th 2012 on Fox News click here.

“I’m not trying to compare the released data to statistical numbers of rapes and sexual assaults occurring on land because the last outnumbers the cruise ship assaults of course, but that is not the point,” said Sean M. Cleary. “The point is that women and sadly under-aged young adults are not safe while on cruise ships.”

Attorney Sean M. Cleary says that it is very important that people who intend to go on cruises to be aware of this risk and also reduce this risk as much as they can. A few very important things one should consider are:

  •     never isolate oneself
  •     do not trust strangers
  •     be very vigilant
  •     do not use headphones in situations that can turn out dangerous
  •     be aware where you are and how to get to a safe place with more people quickly
  •     never let your children out of sight
