The possibility of unregistered passengers on the ship ! yes look at the london subway trains the prostitutes work them 24 hours of the day . I suppose there is a possibility of lovers and girlfriends getting smuggled on board or a cash deal with the crew to look the other way when passengers are boarding the ship . Looks like the captain was in on a bit of hanky-panky himself .

It's 2012, ships like this should have an automatic main office notifier whenever the ship is off scheduled course by more than a half mile to prevent against idiot captains.
