  • In 2019, there were 101 allegations of ships embarking and disembarking in the United States
  • If the victim is a US citizen, the FBI has jurisdiction over the crime.

A recent jury verdict in a sexual assault case in federal court against Carnival Cruise Line has drawn attention to what some experts consider a lesser-known danger on cruise ships.

The Southern District of Florida jury in late July found the cruise line owed more than $10 million to a woman who alleged crew member Fredy Anggara raped her while on a cruise in 2018, according to court documents. He was not named as an accused.
