Because cruise ships can accommodate the population of a small town, having some form of containment area is necessary.

Unruly passengers, passengers who are a threat to security or have committed a crime while at sea can be locked in a small jail-like room on the ship.

This area is usually located near the security office, where they will be held until they can be passed on to the appropriate authorities once the ship reaches a port.
