This case involves two seventeen-year-old female students who were raped by crew members on board a cruise ship destined for the Caribbean. The two girls had recently graduated from high school and were traveling together on a ten-day cruise. Three nights after departing the American seaport, both girls were partying at a nightclub aboard the cruise ship. Access to the club requires patrons to be at least twenty-one-years-old, although their ages were never verified upon entry. Crew members working in the night club provided alcoholic beverages to the girls and never checked for identification. Later that night, the girls were lured into a vacant suite by a group of three crew members, where they were repeatedly raped. A toxicologist ran toxicology tests for both girls that revealed traces of Rohypnol, commonly referred to as the “date rape drug.” The two girls brought suit and an expert was requested to determine the liability of the cruise ship company.
