Cruise Ship Protection
Although cruise ships have a statistically lower risk of pirate attacks and hijack they pose a far more complex scenario. Despite that pirates have attacked a broad range of vessels with varying results.
The laws concerning the use of armed guards (PCASP) on cruise ships have been relaxed more recently. The International Maritime Organisation now accepts that the deployment of armed security personnel is an accepted practice for security against the threats of boarding, kidnap and ransom.
The protection of cruise ships, their passengers and crews from piracy or terrorism presents a complex and involved balance of threat recognition, strategy management and defence. Our specialist teams have the experience, knowledge and capabilities to ensure the protection of your vessel, passengers, crew and reputation.
