Information about federal investigations of cruise ship crimes is often impossible for the public to obtain.

For instance, two juveniles who admitted participating in a gang rape of a 15-year-old girl have not been prosecuted, and neither the FBI nor the U.S. Attorney's Office will say why. The adult involved was convicted and sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Nor will the feds comment about why a passenger suspected of exposing himself to several teenage girls was allowed to go free without charges. Video of the man was recorded, but Port Canaveral police have failed to provide it to Local 6 in response to a public records request.
