CRUISE LINER SECURITY
Providing security from external and onboard disruptions
Cruise liners are unique in the breadth and depth of the security challenges they present. Like other vessels entering high-risk
areas, a cruise liner is a possible target for piracy and terror attacks and a hotbed for organized crime, primarily drug, arms and
other smuggling. At the same time, with thousands of vacationing passengers on board, a cruise ship can also be home to other
crimes: violence, sexual assault, theft and robbery, and in rare cases kidnap and murder. One of major security concerns on a
cruise ship is intoxication, as it tends to quickly cause to an escalation of minor conflicts, and can lead to more serious crimes.

HRM provides safety and security solutions to deal with the myriad of challenges aboard a passenger cruise liner from the inside and out, without disturbing the vacation vibe on board.
Cruise line operators strive to create a pleasant, carefree environment for all passengers, but with thousands of strangers/cultural backgrounds vacationing together at sea, things can quickly get out of hand on board. Our role is to assure smooth sailing by maintain the security and safety of passengers and crew, without obstructing the overall enjoyable environment cruise liner operators work so hard to achieve.
The secret is knowing how to balance between the need to “show presence” and blending in with the crowd, so innocent passengers don’t feel like they are surrounded by armed forces.
