How much crime occurs on cruise ships? Carnival Corp., Royal Caribbean and Norwegian Cruise Line have voluntarily reported alleged serious crimes on their ships.

In 2 1/2 years, there have been 237 such crimes. Rape, sexual assault and thefts over $10,000 are the most reported crimes.

But CBS New Travel Editor Peter Greenberg says it’s difficult for people to interpret the data, and it fails to include lesser crimes, such as theft of electronics.

Watch Greenberg on CBS This Morning in the video below:
