We also have just been contacted and denied a cruise on RCC. There is no such panel. They hire an independent security firm who turns down anyone on the Sex Offender Registry. I asked the woman rep how many passengers in the history of RCC have been assaulted by registered sex offenders in the past, and the answer was none. My question was why are they putting laws in effect for problems that don’t exist. We are getting a refund, but I still also have airfare and hotels that are paid in full. I told them if that is the case, they should state this restriction up front and clearly in all their brochures in on their websites. I am beyond pissed. My friends’ sex crime was an inappropriate touch with a 17 year old – not some child rape or distribution of child porn. I’m sick to death of these registries and their restrictions. It is against our rights as Americans.
