There is no graphic or direct sexual assault. However, there are some moments that could be considered sexual harassment. For example, Elizabeth being told that if she doesn't wear a certain dress, she will have to dine with the crew while naked.

Yes, but in a romantic sense. Mild spoiler: Will sneaks up to rescue Elizabeth, and he gently puts a hand over her mouth so she doesn't alert the bad guys before she realizes it's him.

There is a prolonged scene where a woman has trouble breathing in a tight corset; she faints from lack of oxygen, then immediately nearly drowns when she falls into water. Several characters choke and wheeze when their throats are slit. A man struggles with a noose tightening around his neck.

1) Keira Knightley’s character faints from her corset being too tight and falls into the water off a cliff. She’s then rescued, pulled out of the water, and revived.

2) Keira Knightley’s character is punched unconscious in the later half of the movie.

There is a character, Marty, with a form of dwarfism. When he is introduced as a member of Jack's new crew, Will makes a sarcastic, and potentially rude, comment saying "This is your able-bodied crew?" Granted, he is addressing the whole crew and not just Marty, but it still could be upsetting to some viewers.

men are seen falling/jumping out of boats, presumably to their deaths, and there is a scene where someone falls into the water unconscious but is saved.

Numerous characters wield and shoot guns throughout the movie. Several characters, undead people/skeletons, and an undead monkey are seen getting shot.
