Carnival posts data on onboard cruise ship crime

Carnival Corp. released data about 127 alleged crimes reported on its North America-based cruise lines in the past three years as part of a voluntary effort by several large cruise companies to be more accountable to the public.

Carnival made the data public on its website Thursday night. Royal Caribbean and Norwegian Cruise Line posted data about alleged crimes earlier Thursday.

The Carnival data covers the period between July 27, 2010, and June 30, 2013, when ships from four Carnival Corp. brands - Carnival Cruise Line, Holland America, Princess and Seabourn - carried more than 77 million people. The alleged crimes included five reports of suspicious deaths, 38 reports of rape and 20 alleged thefts over $10,000.

Royal Caribbean and Norwegian on Thursday reported 94 crimes and 20 crimes, respectively, between Oct. 2010 and the end of June this year.
