You may finally get the full picture of just how safe you are on a cruise ship. New federal legislation is one step closer to requiring cruise lines to disclose all allegations of crimes at sea to the public. It comes nearly three years after after we first started questioning crime reporting on cruise ships

Travel Investigative Reporter
Introduction
Elyce Kirchner is an award-winning investigative reporter for NBC Bay Area. Her reporting exposes travel and transportation safety related issues and has prompted state and federal legislative change, improved safety standards, and forced policy change. Elyce is a fourth generation San Francisco native who attended St. Ignatius College Preparatory in the city. She is a former Division 1 college athlete who received soccer scholarships at Tulane University and the University of Oregon, where she attended her freshman year. She earned a master’s degree in journalism from Boston University and a bachelor’s degree in Communication and Business from Tulane University in New Orleans. During her career, Elyce has anchored and reported for television stations in Sacramento, Springfield, Massachusetts and Providence, Rhode Island. The year after graduating from Tulane University, Kirchner spent a year abroad and worked for a public relations firm in London. She got her first job in television as a production assistant at KRON-TV in San Francisco. Elyce has been recognized with several journalism awards and nominations, including a 2014 Associated Press Award for coverage of an ongoing story for her year-long series on Ski and Snowboard Safety related issues in California, National Headliner Award for investigative reporting on her series on the high number of tourist drownings on the Hawaiian island of Kauai, and 5 Emmy award nominations. When she’s not reporting, Elyce enjoys spending time with her husband, toddler, and other family and life-long friends in the area. She no longer has the stamina to endure ninety minute soccer games but still loves to exercise, especially outdoors in the beautiful Bay Area.
