  1. Since there are some posts in this thread stating authorities would have been brought in, or the assailant would be removed from the vessel, or that cameras would assist in the investigation, I included some sections of the the complaint filed in UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT WESTERN DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON AT SEATTLE, WASHINGTON (You can certainly go online and obtain the entire compliant. It is 56 pages in length. I added the bold and underscoring to the text below. - the assailant continued to work, interact with passengers, and freely walk through the vessel for a day and half after the incident was reported. - the head of the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy (Myanmar) advised Plaintiff that the Vessel’s Head of Security, “Alex,” had told the head of the Consular Section that the Vessel was ill equipped with CCTV cameras compared to any other cruise ship he worked on and that, if the Vessel had better CCTV cameras, they would have been able to obtain vital video evidence leading up to Assailant’s sexual assault and rape of Plaintiff. Plaintiff was further advised that Assailant would be allowed to disembark the Vessel despite the sexual assault and rape he committed. Pursuant to the Cruise Vessel Security and Safety Act (“CVSSA”), 46 U.S.C. § 3501 et seq., SEABOURN &/or HOLLAND AMERICA are required to report all incidents of crimes, including “sexual assaults” onboard their cruise ships to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”). The reported incidents are then collated into chart form (known as a “Cruise Line Incident Report”) and published on the U.S. Department of Transportation’s website and are available at: https://www.transportation.gov/mission/safety/cruise-line-incident-report-1-apr-30-jun-2019. 3.42 As indicated above, the sexual assault and rape of Plaintiff occurred on or about March 28, 2019 onboard the Vessel. However, the Cruise Incident Reports from January 1, 2019 through June 30, 2019 reveal that SEABOURN &/or HOLLAND AMERICA failed to report this incident of sexual assault and rape to the FBI as required by the CVSSA. Copies of the Cruise Line Incident Reports for the relevant time period are attached as composite
  2. We just got off the Odyssey this month and that is no longer the case. It was announced numerous times (Barbados to Sint Maarten) that the people who embarked in Sint Maarten do NOT have to attend the muster drill for the Barbados embarkation.
  3. We just got off the Odyssey last week. There was a very helpful and friendly server by the name of Balkan at the pool on deck 5 most afternoons.
  4. The issue with VoIP (voice over IP or WiFi Calling) is latency. You would want the latency to be a 150 ms or less for VoIP. When on the Odyssey this week, the round-trip latency was 800 ms. The ship uses a satellite based Internet connection and I think you will find VoIP calling to be problematic.
  5. I would be happy to refer you. You can email me at 7rebel@roadrunner(dot)com.
  6. On Odyssey for Dec 7th - booked OB, received V4 today (Nov 27th).
