Bottom line is no one here knows exactly what happened we all like to assume Disney done what they we are supposed to do I not a lawyer I don't know if this was handled the way it should of been in my opinion if there was any wrong doin on dianey a behalf I assume there would of been a law suit..... We all can either back Disney or put down Disney but like I said I assume they went by the law or there would of been a big problem brought to Disney by our government or te Bahamian government... Bottom line is we can't judge Disney for what we think is right or wrong.. They have laws to abide by wether we like it or not... And we have to hope they did what was right by te laws they have got... Disney I'm sure wants to do what is right or no one woul want to go to Disney or cruise dcl... Am I right about this??

I completely agree. If DCL did not break any laws, I don't expect more of a for-profit corporation. I don't look for pixie dust and magic when it comes to legal procedures/security investigations. I would hope that FL or the Feds would have been interested in prosecuting DCL for illegal acts back in Aug, if any had been committed. And if authorities wont pick on Disney, shame on them for making our laws useless. I also think major news outlets would have picked up the story if there were illegal acts by DCL.

If you don't like DCL's legal policies and procedures you need to let them know with a letter and your wallet. The legal minimum isn't always what I agree with but I can also understand when a company just complies with the law.

Someone posted a while ago that the law requiring cruise ships to notify local/ state or the FBI of sex crimes while onboard did not go into effect until October 2012, after this incident.

Assuming that is correct DCL did not break the law.................

Agree. I've been deposed in lawsuits and advised by attorneys to answer the question asked and then shut up! Do not volunteer any information even if you think it helps and/or seems benign. Disney is not accused of breaking any laws...well, sans some DIS accusations. Answering questions would only inflame more questions.

I would like to hear from Disney whether this was an error on the part of the Captain/someone in the DCL head office (and the mistake has been appropriately dealt with), or if this is their standard operating procedure.
Jumping to a lot of conclusions here. We don't know nearly enough facts to jump to those conclusions.

The legislation quoted on the DCL site is from 2010. You can check it out under safety at the bottom of the home page.

I've seen far too many times recently (hint NBC news) where tapes were altered specifically to make a news story totally twisting the facts! It happens all the time! Not saying it happened this time but when you only have one source, it is suspect.

If you think you "deserve answers" then let Disney know by not vacationing with them. You are right, the innuendo and specualtion will continue but until you get a national audience, it's down in the noise and won't compel Disney to do anything.

you're contradicting yourself...on one hand you want to claim there's some lack of credibility to this story since its not a national news story....yet on the other hand you talk about the news twisting the facts and mention a national news outlet- it sounds confused....

but if somehow the story won't have "credibility" in your opinion until it goes mainstream media (or lamestream media) all i can say is good luck......

The grandmother was to my way of thinking was protecting the child.........i understand your feelings in asking why did she do press charges, but i can see and understand she was protecting her granddaughter.

It is all over the internet now. Where many people get their news/travel info. Twitter, Youtube (video comes up when searching for DCL videos-not good), every major Disney fan site with message boards has long threads on it, Facebook groups about DCL, travel agent forums, Cruise Critic, etc.

my only question is, and i don't know the answer, do charges need to be pressed by the victim in the case of assault/sexual assault of a minor when there's video evidence at hand???

That is a question I do not have a answer too. Maybe someone in law enforcement or a lawyer in reading could help us with.

If you are saying that I am jumping to conclusions regarding the timeline of what happened in the first two hours, I disagree. We have the timeline constructed from the timestamped video and a reputable reporter's report of DCL's own incident report.

The rest I said is appearances. Until DCL explains their actions, we can only go on the apparent motive for their actions.
