Vegas stole the slogan but cruise ships can also lay claim, “Whatever happens on cruise ships, stays on cruise ships”.
Only a tiny portion of alleged crimes on cruise ships is ever publicly disclosed, according to a report by the Senate Commerce Committee.
Of 959 crimes reported to the FBI since 2011, only 31 were disclosed on a web site maintained by the U.S. Coast Guard.
As a consequence, passengers have an incomplete picture of crime on board of ships.
