Cruise ship companies are sophisticated enough not to keep statistics on how often passengers disappear or die after falling overboard. This does not mean that it is not a common occurrence.
This negligence extends into how cruise ship employees keep records of who is on the ship. Add a heavy drinking atmosphere into the mix and the level of risk increases exponentially. It is the responsibility of the cruise ship to have security employees stationed in areas where individuals could fall overboard due to being over-served alcohol, getting into a fight or any other incident.
