While not as well-known as cruise lines line Carnival or Royal Caribbean, Celebrity Cruises has carved out a nice niche for itself.
They have even garnered some notoriety of late for being featured on and now partnering with Top Chef. But, while they may, as their website indicates, be “consistently voted amongst the top cruise lines in the world,” that does not mean their passengers never suffer from many of the same accidents, injuries, and embarrassing incidents as other cruise lines.
If you take a trip with Celebrity Cruises and suffer an accident or illness due to their negligence, it is important that you seek out the help of experienced maritime lawyers like The Law Office of Andrew Winston as soon as possible. They have been helping people like you for the past 30 years, and they have the qualifications and dedication you need to ensure that you’ll get the compensation that you deserve.
Booking a trip on Celebrity Cruises means that you’ll be travelling on one of their 11 luxury liners. These ships are broken up into 4 categories based on their size, the types of amenities that they offer, and the cruises that they embark upon.
Solstice Class. All of these ships hold just under 2900 passengers, weigh about 120,000 pounds, and have a cruising speed of 24kts. Solstice Class ships include:
Millenium Class. This class of ships is a bit smaller than the Solstice Class, averaging around 2200 passengers and 91,000 pounds, and cruising at a speed of 24 knots.
Century Class. Both a class and a single ship, the Celebrity Century is more “intimate” than the line’s other vessels so far, carrying 1814 passengers and cruising along at 21 knots. Still, it boasts several restaurants, a bar, and even a casino.
Celebrity Xpedition. Talk about intimate. The Xpedition is not really an ocean liner, but a “mega-yacht” that transports 98 passengers. It is small and sleek enough to explore the Galapagos Islands, and Celebrity even employs Galapagos National Park-certified naturalists on board to teach you about the area and ensure that the cruise does not do anything to disturb it.
As you can see from the links above, all the renovations and awards in the world haven’t stopped Celebrity Cruises from having many of the same problems that every cruise line goes through. In addition to those already described, reports show that an apparently discontinued ship in Celebrity’s line – the Mercury – had one of the worst norovirus outbreaks ever, with more than 400 people getting sick in 2010.
If you suffer an accident, injury, illness, or experience medical negligence while on a Celebrity cruise, you owe it to yourself and future passengers to hold the company responsible where appropriate so that you get the compensation you need and they change their practices to avoid future trouble.
