Another Couple Vanishes from Carnival Cruise Ship and Cruise Line is Quick to Blame Victims
107 INDIVIDUALS HAVE GONE OVERBOARD SINCE THE YEAR 2000. THAT'S AN AVERAGE OF ABOUT ONE PER MONTH, YET CONGRESS HAS YET TO IMPROVE SECURITY AND SAFETY RULES. http://www.cruisejunkie.com/Overboard.html
Many of the deaths were never investigated thoroughly and were never solved. Foul play should be considered for all incidents until they are fully investigated. The Cruise Lines continue to tell the media that this is a rare occurence. Nothing has improved since our cruise in 2005. Hundreds of sexual assults have been reported on cruise ships and there has not been one conviciont in the last 40 years.

We offer our support and prayers to all families as they struggle to resolve these tragedies.

FBI agents responded to a cruise ship Friday to search for a missing married couple, who may have gone overboard.The wife, 79, and husband, 90, have not been seen since Tuesday, said Laura Eimiller of the FBI. The Carnival Cruise line ship, Carnival Paradise, docked in Long Beach on Friday. The vessel holds 2,052 passengers and just returned from a four-day cruise to Catalina Island and Ensenada."The woman and her husband, whose identities are not being released at this time, were not accounted for when passengers disembarked in Long Beach," Eimiller said.Eimiller said investigators were aboard the ship conducting interviews and an evidence response team was sent to search for anything that might suggest possible foul play, but she could not confirm whether or not foul play was suspected. "Whether we're dealing with a homicide, a suicide situation or an accidental death,'' Eimiller said to ABC7, the FBI would not make any determination "until we have all the facts.'' "Their cabin door was double locked from the inside with a do not disturb sign on the handle and the door leading from the cabin to the balcony was unlocked. The couple's personal belongings remained inside the cabin," said a statement from Carnival.
