Cruise Line Incident Reporting Statistics

The Cruise Vessel Security and Safety Act (CVSSA) of 2010 prescribes security and safety requirements for most cruise ships that embark and disembark in the United States. The Act mandates that reports of criminal activity be reported to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Per the Act, the U.S. Coast Guard is responsible for posting via internet portal cruise line reporting statistics provided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

 

 

 

1Pursuant to Title 46 U.S.C section 3507(g)(4)(A):

“The Secretary shall maintain a statistical compilation of all incidents described [above] on an
Internet site that provides a numerical accounting of the missing persons and alleged crimes
recorded in each report filed [above] that are no longer under investigation by the Federal Bureau
of Investigation. The data shall be updated no less than quarterly, aggregated by cruise line, each
cruise line shall be identified by name, and each crime shall be identified as to whether it was
committed by a passenger or a crew member.” (emphasis added)

Note:

The number of matters “no longer under investigation” provided on this Internet site is necessarily
different than the aggregate number of matters required to be reported to the FBI per the above. A
matter may be reported but not opened as a full investigation if, for example, there is
insufficient evidence of a federal crime within FBI jurisdiction or prosecution is declined.

The “matters no longer under investigation” provided herein do not include:

1) open investigations or pending prosecutions;

2) reported matters other than homicide, suspicious death, a missing United States national,
kidnapping, assault with serious bodily injury, sexual assault, firing or tampering with a vessel,
or theft of money and property in excess of $10,000;

3) any matters that were reported that did not result in open investigations, e.g., lack of federal
