The brands Carnival Australia represents endorse a zero tolerance approach to excessive behaviour onboard. This guide is designed to offer information to all passengers on proper response procedures and available law enforcement processes in the event that an incident occurs.
Passengers should immediately report missing persons and criminal activity to ship personnel so appropriate action may be taken to ensure the safety and security of all persons on board. Timely reporting of an incident is also imperative so that necessary law enforcement notifications can be made as expeditiously as possible. Incidents may be reported at any time by dialling the emergency number onboard or reporting to the reception desk. Missing persons or criminal activity may also be reported directly to the on board Security Department or through the reception desk. Any situations requiring medical assistance can be reported by to the Medical Department at any time or through the reception desk.
Carnival Australia reports all missing persons and criminal incidents to appropriate law enforcement authorities. In addition to our own reporting policies and other local legal requirements, on international voyages that embark or disembark in the United States, U.S. federal law requires Carnival Australia to report missing U.S. nationals and the above felonies to the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) by telephone as soon as possible, to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security electronically, and to the U.S. Coast Guard in writing. These U.S. requirements apply to all such incidents that occur on board in U.S. territorial waters, or at sea or in another country’s territorial waters if the individuals involved are U.S. nationals. The U.S. FBI may assert criminal jurisdiction in all of these circumstances. Each of the countries visited, as well as the ship’s country of registry, may also assert jurisdiction and impose additional reporting requirements.
