That's true macmom111, however, I still wonder about those, too. I went with a "friend" on a cruise where she was flaunting herself to the crew the entire time. In fact, she kicked me out of our cabin one night so she could entertain. I didn't remain friendly after that.
I know that there are true assault cases, but that normally means that crew member has lost his job and is put off in the next port.
I do hope the legislation does help bring the criminals to justice. However, wooddon brings up an excellent point. What about Europeans and Canadians? Will the FBI help them, too?
