Cruise lines prepared for possible pirate attacks

People would typically not assume pirate attacks are possible in 2019, but these modern-day cruise lines are prepared in case pirates to try to sneak onto one of their ships.

Spectrum of the Seas from Royal Caribbean as well as Sun Princess from Princess Cruises have exercises in use in case of an attack, especially where piracy has been known to take place.

Royal Caribbean has also added additional armed security for passenger assurance.
