Late last month, Disney Cruise Line published their Q4 – 2013 Voluntary Crime Allegation discloure report for the period October 1 – December 31, 2013. During this period there were two claims of theft of property valued over $10,000 were made by passengers against crew members. During the quarter DCL estimated there were 218,000 passengers and a daily complement of 5000 crew members. According to the report, these allegations were reported to the appropriate law enforcement and government authorities.
The increase in total passengers from Q3 to Q4 2013 can be attributed to the Disney Magic’s extended dry dock which did not embark on any new passenger sailings in September 2013. It is also important to note that reports for quarters with zero claims do not include total passenger numbers or crew numbers. However, the daily crew numbers seem fixed on these reports so I’ve carried that number over for the months without any claims.
According to the voluntary reports published to date by Disney Cruise Line, to the best of Disney Cruise Line’s knowledge, no charges have been filed in any of these alleged incidents.
This past August, DCL joined other cruise lines by voluntarily providing this information on their website.
