Nothing puts a damper on the excitement and romance quite like a bout of stomach sickness. Unfortunately, food poisoning and stomach viruses are common culprits for just that on some cruises.

This survey also found that medical issues were one of the reasons why cruise passengers filed travel insurance claims for cruise-related issues. On the whole, the findings of the poll tell us that staying healthy is probably the biggest priority for anyone who goes on a cruise.

What’s Next for the Cruise Worker Found Alive after 22 Hours at Sea?

A cruise ship worker from the Norwegian Getaway cruise ship recently fell overboard in the Gulf of Mexico. US Coast Guard ships attempted to locate the man for many hours, but they eventually called off the search after covering over 1,600 square miles without success.

Twenty-two hours later, however, a cabin steward from a Carnival cruise ship spotted the stranded man in the water waving for help. Miraculously, he was rescued and is in stable condition. He had no survival devices at the time of his rescue, and he is presumed to have treaded water the entire time he was stranded.

Although the victim was rescued due to an extremely lucky coincidence, drownings and other injures are not uncommon on

In this post, we’ll detail the potential problems that you must watch out for when you cruise. If you are injured on a cruise ship due to someone else’s negligence, you should fight back with a skilled maritime lawyer.

Brawls

In February 2018, several brawls developed aboard the Carnival Legend when it was sailing off the coast of Australia. Reports indicate that a 23-member family group instigated many of the brawls, which the crew did not sufficiently control. A video even suggested that crew members kicked a passenger while on the ground.
