Rational and sane people do not say things like that repeatedly. Nothing about saying you want to kill people is innocent. If I'm not mistaken, a lot of people who do end up carrying out those actions posted similar things to their own social media accounts.  

You did the right thing.

Thanks everyone..I have been in touch with the Global security and Investigations Operations for Royal......they had asked me not to say anything further at this point as they look into this.

 

I certainly don't want to get any one in trouble but at the very least, even if this is all innocent speak on social media, it certainly doesn't make Royal look good...and it could be potentially much worse. 

Thanks for speaking out!

I hope RCCL will give you some type of confirmation something has been done.  I believe once this has been done, then we can stop saying anything further.

A call to RCMP/CSIS wouldn't hurt.  They know how to engage the appropriate agency on the other side of the border.

One concern with calling RC is that only represent RC's interests.  They won't likely get this guy on any radar screens of any government agency where he appears to belong.

totall agree with @twangster.    obviously Royal wants to keep it under wraps.       At the end of the day,  the OP won't get a thing from Royal for reporting this so they certainly won't lose anything by continuing to press the issue outside of their bubble.   if anything, if this "leaks" out, than it will force their hand to ensure they have proper cyber-monitoring in place for this sort of thing going forward.   pictures or it didn't happen....

Thank you for taking this further. I'm sure anyone traveling on that ship in the near future is grateful you took the time to report this to the proper authorities.

I can see this being a lot more benign than it appears. Most of what you mentioned can be traced back to music (lyrics or album title) and memes.

 

That being said, I can where it could be alarming and I wouldn’t want my business being connected to those post.  

 

You did the right thing just bringing it to royals attention. Better safe than sorry.

ha...I doubt that and didn't do it for that.....although if I somehow stopped some big event from happening I guess it would be nice to receive some kinda acknowledgment....but at the end of the day.....I would rather feel safe than anything I guess!

 

And it is prob nothing at all...so I doubt I'll hear anything else at this point..but who knows. I did take screen shots of at least 4-5 of his different posts and they said if they needed anything else they would be in touch but they have/see everything that I saw.

I would have alerted the FBI, as they have jurisdiction and can coordinate with the Coast Guards while in U.S. coastal waters, if not in U.S. Coastal waters the FBI can escalate it up to the next port of entry authorities and have him detained until an investigation is completed.

Even if he is trying to get attention or be funny, which this is not, I would hope RCL would be concern he is smoking in the engine room with all the flammable liquids around him. A fire in the bottom of a large ship in the middle of the ocean is not good.  Thanks for saying something!

With all that is going in the world normal people don't make jokes like that anymore. Only someone with strange fantasies makes statements like his. He may say he is joking but he has the capability to do something bad if given the opportunity. He may not have the "balls" to do anything, but someone like that has a trigger that will light a fuse that will only end badly. Good on you for reporting it.

Late to join the conversation in this one, but I think this point is what makes this whole thing really disturbing.  You have someone here who is in the perfect position and has ample opportunity to do a whole lot of harm. Hubby and I just had a conversation last cruise about how safe ships really are...

I personally wouldn't even feel assured by just leaving it with Royal. They, of course, will look out for their own interests first. I agree with some of the others to alert even a higher level of authority. And @monctonguy thank you for reporting it. Hopefully you hear something back from them and not just swept under the rug.

I am currently @ RC in Miami and I’m headed in to make sure this gets follow up. This is extremely disturbing and I agree that reporting it is not enough. I will not leave until this is resolved. If OP released the Instagram handle this person could at least be exposed. I’m sure our local paper (Sun Sentinal or MH) would like to know about this...

One word : screenshot 

I agree. There is no reason to protect this person's privacy if they are really posting things like that. When you post something publicly on the internet you obviously aren't expecting privacy...
