Cruises can be safe but a lot of people forget they still need to keep a look-out on board ship also.
People seem to let their guard down ...lots of drinking & partys.
There are bad people that take cruises also.
Children are left on their own to ride the elevators and run around the ship ....pedophiles could be anywhere.
Just watch Dateline ...you don't know what they look like!
