It’s hard to get away from people who want to cause trouble in our society, and cruise ships are no exception. So, what happens to people who have done something bad while on a cruise ship – do they get go to jail or some other holding facility?

Yes, cruise ships have jails!

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.
