cruisin john,

obviuosly the Smith case has had a major impact on people's feelings as far as security onboard cruise ships is concerned. But in my humble opinion there is no reason to feel unsafe at all. I don't know of a single land-based hotel which offers the same high level of security that cruise ships do (probably excluding hotels in Iraq ). What can be dangerous onboard a cruise ship is if the passengers act inappropriately e.g. by balancing on railings or by trying to climb from one balcony to the other. But as long as passengers don't actively seek the danger, cruise ships are very, very safe.
Best regards,
