Security Guide

You should immediately dial 911 or the Guests Service Desk to report any missing person or criminal activity. In addition the Security Department is responsible for responding to alleged crimes and missing persons and can be contacted directly at any time by dialing 911 or though the Guests Service Desk. It is important that Guests report immediately missing persons and criminal activities so that responding Oceania Cruises personnel can collect and secure the necessary information.

The Medical Department can be contacted at any time by dialing 911 or through the Guests Service Desk for any required medical assistance.

Oceania Cruises has zero tolerance for crime on board its vessels. On international voyages that embark or disembark in the United States, Oceania Cruises is required by federal law to report on board felonies and missing U.S. nationals to federal agencies. For a missing U.S. national and all serious felonies (homicide, suspicious death, kidnapping, assault with serious bodily injury, sexual assaults as defined by federal laws, firing or tampering with the vessel, or theft of money or property in excess of $10,000) the incident must be reported to the F.B.I. by telephone as soon as possible, to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security electronically, and to the U.S. Coast Guard in writing. These requirements apply to incidents that occur on board in U.S. territorial waters, or on the high seas or in foreign waters if the assailant or victim is a U.S. national.

The F.B.I. can assert criminal jurisdiction in all of these circumstances. Each of the nations visited, as well as the vessel's nation of registry, may also assert jurisdiction and/or impose additional reporting requirements. Oceania Cruises reserves the right to report any/all criminal allegations to any national, state or local law enforcement agency in addition to those mentioned.

For missing persons or felonies arising at any time during the voyage you may independently contact the F.B.I. or U.S. Coast Guard. For incidents within state or foreign waters or ports you may, in addition, contact local law enforcement authorities. Contact information for these entities and the National Sexual Assault Hotline is listed on the following page, along with the locations of U.S. Embassies and Consulates in the ports visited.
