If a Fun Excursion Goes Sour, Your Cruise Line Can Be Held Responsible

Part of the fun of cruise vacations is the opportunity to explore ports around the world. Cruise lines promote these options at different ports of call to help their passengers make the most of their experiences onshore. From horseback riding to snorkeling to walking tours, these shore excursions can be memorable and exciting.

It’s important to remember, however, that activities offered in onshore excursions carry risk. Injuries do happen on shore, with many factors that contribute to accidents. These factors can include negligence on behalf of the cruise line or the shore excursion company.

When an injury on a shore excursion happens, what do you do? Can you sue the cruise line for your injuries?

Here’s what you need to

Injured at Sea? A Lawsuit May be More Complicated Than You Think

Millions of Americans go on cruises each year. Reasonably, accidents can happen on cruise ships just like anywhere else. However, not many people realize that the cruise line can be liable for injuries sustained while onboard.

If you’re injured at sea, you have the right to sue. But you also have to meet a fairly high bar in order to show that the cruise line should, in fact, be liable and made to pay. In fact, it can be quite complicated to pursue lawsuits against cruise lines for a variety of reasons.

Whether you’re a regular on the cruise ship scene or dreaming of your first, it’s important to understand what to do if you’re injured on a cruise, including

What Carnival’s 6 Injured Passengers Did Right After Cruise Collision

Most of us have a general idea about how to stay safe once you’ve set sail. Not to mention, every cruise line has a quick tutorial for all passengers before the ship even leaves the dock.

You know to follow safety guidelines, hold onto railings, and be cautious while in port in foreign countries. Still, there’s one potential cause for injury over which you have zero control: a crash. Yes, cruise ships can – and do – collide.

You likely heard that’s exactly what happened in Cozumel, Mexico in December.

When Cruise Ships Collide

Two Carnival Cruise ships ran into each other as they were pulling into port, resulting in six injured. The cruise giant claims that the impact was

Grandpa Charged in Toddler’s Death – Should It Have Been Cruise Line?

In a tragic incident on July 7th, 2019, an 18-month-old fell to her death from a window 11 stories up on a Royal Caribbean International cruise ship. According to reports, her grandfather had placed her on a railing next to the window, assuming it was closed. She is said to have loved banging on glass at her brother’s hockey games, and the grandfather wanted to let her play. The window he chose happened to be the single pane in a wall made almost entirely of glass that happened to be open.

It gets even worse, though. As if suffering the death of his granddaughter was not enough, in the aftermath of the incident, the grandfather was arrested on

Will Newlywed Who Fell from Carnival Balcony Sue?

Not often do we hear of a cruise ship accident that isn’t immediately followed by angry laments and threats of a lawsuit.

It seems a recent Carnival Cruise incident may be one of those rare cases. Of course, the victim’s statute of limitations isn’t up until late 2022, so there’s still time for that to change.

There are two key factors of cruise line liability that Carnival’s team is likely already reviewing – passenger slip and falls… and overserving guests. In this post, we take a closer look at both. First, though, a bit more on the story itself.

The Anti-Slip Cruise Accident: When Safety Measures Backfire

Two years ago, a New York senior filed a claim against Spirit Cruises. He alleged that the anti-skid coating applied to the top deck during a million-dollar renovation aboard the Spirit of Norfolk the year before caused him serious injury when he sustained a fall during a game of corn-hole.

Anytime we take a spill – slip-and-falls are one of the most common cruise ship injuries – it can be shocking, painful, and downright embarrassing. This can be especially so when it happens in such a public setting.

With so much going on at once, it probably feels most comfortable to chalk it up to a freak accident. You try and recover quickly and hope that no one noticed what

$10 Million Lawsuit Causes Royal Caribbean to Close Ride

A Washington man on a Royal Caribbean cruise recently suffered a fractured pelvis after the bungee cord on the Sky Pad trampoline bungee ride broke 20 feet above deck, causing him to plummet to the floor next to it.

Since then, he’s been living in Sarasota for several months while he slowly rehabilitates. As of this writing, he still has another three months before he can bear any weight, and he’s getting therapy for depression. As a result of all of this, the young man has filed a $10 million lawsuit against Royal Caribbean.

Do these kinds of personal injury claims work? It already has – at least in part: in response to the lawsuit, Royal Caribbean closed the ride
