Cruise ships regularly lose passengers, even crew members, and continue on their trip unless ordered to stop by the local coast guard. But often the coast guard won't be notified until hours after the person has been reported missing. Think about it this way: cruise ships are full of thousands of people, many of whom are intoxicated, and no police are anywhere to be found. While security exists, they answer to the cruise ship company, which is focused on maximizing profits.
