Legal Implications of Sexual Assault and Harassment on a Cruise Ship

Cruise ships allow passengers to relax, unwind, and enjoy a vacation on the high seas. However, like in any other environment, sexual assault and harassment can occur on a cruise ship. When sexual assault or harassment occurs on a cruise ship can have serious legal implications for both the victim and the cruise line.

What Is Sexual Assault and Harassment?

Sexual assault is a form of sexual violence that involves unwanted sexual contact or behavior. This can include groping, fondling, or rape. Sexual harassment, on the other hand, involves unwanted sexual advances, comments, or behavior that creates a hostile or uncomfortable environment. Both sexual assault and harassment are illegal and can have serious physical, emotional, and psychological consequences for victims.
