Mysterious and unsolved disappearances of cruise ship passengers
The epidemic you've never heard of
Four people have gone missing from cruise ships between November 22 and December 16, 2018, highlighting a major problem most people aren't aware of. Cruise ships regularly lose passengers, even crew members, and continue on their trip unless ordered to stop by the local coast guard. But often the coast guard won't be notified until hours after the person has been reported missing.
Think about it this way: cruise ships are full of thousands of people, many of whom are intoxicated, and no police are anywhere to be found. While security exists, they answer to the cruise ship company, which is focused on maximizing profits.
Have a look at some of the stories behind how people went missing on cruise ships and were never to be found again.
