    FL - Tammy Grogan, 37, Miami, 10 Sept 2006 - Missing from Cruise Ship

    Ohio Woman Disappears From Cruise Ship

    MIAMI (Sept. 11) - Authorities are investigating the disappearance of an Ohio woman who was reported missing Monday from a Carnival Cruise Lines ship........

    The International Council of Cruise Lines, an industry lobbying group, reported earlier this year that a review of data from 15 lines showed 24 reports of missing people between 2003 to 2005.

    I read this earlier and it is so sad. It seems like it is happening more and more.

    AGAIN????

    Geez---Maybe they should gather all the passenger manifests from each cruise where someone went missing and compare them to see if anyones name pops up on each one....

    Why don't they do something with the rails on those ship that would make it impossible for anyone to fall over the side of them? I just find it impossible to believe that so many people "fall" over the sides of these ships. Maybe that is the way someone commits murder instead of using a gun, knife, or other types of objects. I think they should check the crews on these ships and see if they can find one person who was one the ships of the missing. I would imagine that it is possible for a crew member to switch ships when the ships all belong to the same cruise line...or most of them anyway. I don't think that all of these people "fell" or "jumped" off these ships.

    If the cruise line cared anything about their passengers they would do something with the rails. It probably wouldn't even be that big of a deal to make them higher. Course the cruise lines are all about MONEY.

    Okay - I'm going on a cruise in December. I just want all of you to know that if I go missing, you need to look for a person with a really bad back injury because they'd have a hell of a time throwing my fat carcass over the railing!

    Not that I am going cruising but I'd be safe as they'd needa a crane to get me up and over! But jokes aside cruising does seem a bit scary. maybe it is the combination of alcohol and the danger of the open sea.
    It depends on the cruise but here they seem very popular with singles.
    We had a nasty case a few years ago where a woman was date raped by a group of men and then found dead in their cabin. It is still under investigation and enquiry but nobody has been charged.Those men treated the lady really badly.
    Then again hundred of cruises go across the ocean every year and most people have a great time. When you think how many people enjoy cruising and do it a lot it is safe.

    I love going on cruises. I always approach them the same way I approach my everyday life - there are good people and bad people everywhere, so you have to be cautious at all times and use good common sense.

    I've never been on a cruise before & definately don't plan on going on one. Now that some physcho is either throwing people over the edge or the cruise line decides to hold someone accountable for all the missing people. JMOIMHO this is just not right!

    I can't believe this....I just left the office that this women worked in. They are all in shock and awe. She was a great person really friendly and outgoing. She has a 13 year old son who was with her and her parents on the ship. . Her dad was the one who call in to the office this morning and told them what had happen.(she was supposed to be back at work today) I asked them do you think she would have jumped? They all said NO her son was her life.She was a single mom. My heart goes out to this family. They haven't released her name yet and I don't know why? Please pray for her son, she was his only parent.

    I also find it coincidental that most of these people go over the railing sometime late at night - never during the day when there are witnesses.

    I agree. But, cruise ships stop at several different ports, so there is also the possibility that some of these missing people have disappeared voluntarily in another country. Maybe not in the most recent case, but I bet it has happened.

    It is possible that she left the ship but I think it's not easy to do. My experience with cruise ships is that they track you when you leave the ship and come back on. You have a card that you swipe at the door going out and in and you can't easily avoid it due to security. My husband and some of his friends were still at a pub in Juneau Alaska 10 minutes before the ship was supposed to depart and the ship security called our cabin and asked me where he was. They were aware of exactly who was not on board. Of course he got an earful from me when he showed up about 8 minutes later!

    Maybe they should make it mandatory to wear a life jacket at all times on all cruise ships?????

    I think they need cameras on the decks and on the sides of the ship. I'm sure they can't film cabin balconys but at least they could film activity in public areas where there is a railing.
