Cruise Safety Article in the Miami Herald


The Miami-Herald came out with an article today on cruise safety. The article features serveral indistry statistics released by the cruise lines which overall make it sound like cruise ships are extremely safe and crimes rarely, if ever, occur.

The article quotes Charles Lipcon, of Lipcon, Margulies & Alsina, P.A., and states:

Some safety advocates and lawyers dispute industry figures. Charles R. Lipcon, a Miami attorney who specializes in maritime injury cases, for instance, says the assault statistics noted by Crye don’t square with other reports.

”The head of security for a cruise line said [in a deposition] that the line reports two sexual assaults per month per ship,” said Lipcon.
