Global Cruise Industry Operational Safety Review (OSR)
Cruising is one of the safest forms of leisure transportation, thanks to the global cruise industry’s longstanding commitment to safety, strict regulations and vigorous enforcement mechanisms. In keeping with the cruise industry’s efforts to continuously improve operational safety, the global cruise industry voluntarily launched the Cruise Industry Operational Safety Review (Review) that provided a comprehensive assessment of the critical human factors and operational aspects of maritime safety. The Review resulted in 10 wide-ranging policies that all exceed current international regulatory requirements.

International Maritime Organization (IMO)
In addition to the industry's efforts to set self-regulatory standards, cruise lines also follow the International Maritime Organization's (IMO) multiple conventions. IMO Conventions provide guidance relating to various maritime subjects, including pollution regulation, training and safety and security. These international standards hold all ships to the same high standards and provide a mechanism for enforcement.
