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 cruise ships for crew members and passengers alike. Unfortunately, holding the responsible parties accountable for preventable accidents is often a complex matter, as accidents

Thinking about a Fall Cruise? Here’s Where and How to Cruise

Fall cruises are a great opportunity for a family getaway before all the chaos of the holiday season begins. Fall cruises are also frequently less expensive than peak season cruises, which means they’re a great time to score a bargain.

Here are some of the best cruises to embark on during the fall season.

New England and Atlantic Canada

New England and Atlantic Canada are famous for their brilliant fall foliage. Also famous in New England is the horrendous traffic caused by all the leaf peepers, so cruising is a spectacular way to take in the fall foliage from the luxury of a cruise ship.

New England cruises typically depart from Boston or New York, and sail up to Nova Scotia or even along the Saint Lawrence river farther north. Common ports of call are located in Maine, Nova Scotia, Quebec, and New Brunswick.

Why So Many People Like Taking Cruise Vacations           

Planning your next vacation? Many people love taking cruises for vacations. We’ll detail the top reasons people prefer cruises to other vacations.

Less Planning

When you travel to a single destination, you must book transportation and lodging. You’ll need to plan an itinerary and buy tickets to museums or shows. You may feel overwhelmed by all the choices you have to make and how much time planning requires.

With a cruise, almost all the planning is taken care of for you. You simply choose the cruising dates and locations, then participate as you wish once on board. If you don’t like planning, cruises can be a great option for you.

A Buffet of Options

On a cruise, you have so many options for entertainment and recreation in one convenient spot. You can swim, relax, eat a variety of different cuisines, shop, get a massage

How Cruise Ship Slip and Fall Accident Liability Works

After an alleged slip and fall accident aboard a deck on the Oceania Cruises Marina, one woman has filed a case with the U. S. District Court for damages related to her injuries.

The woman claims that since the cruise line was negligent in several ways, it is financially responsible for her bone fractures and contusions. She alleges that the steps and flooring were not marked as being wet or slippery, nor were they dried in a reasonable period of time. Her allegations include that since the walkway was not secure and no measures were taken to provide a non-skid surface, and since employees were improperly trained, the cruise line is liable for her injuries.

Is she right? How do cases like these work?

Below, we’re going to break down how slip and fall injury cases work when they happen on a cruise

Cruise Injury? Potential Incidents You Can Seek Compensation For

Earlier this year, a Floridian woman filed a lawsuit against Carnival Cruise Lines for an incident that led to serious injuries in the Bahamas. She was on a Carnival cruise to the Bahamas and decided to embark on a safari tour. Tour guides took the guests in a Mercedez-Benz Unimog, a notoriously unsafe vehicle without seat belts. The Unimog flipped over, and the woman was thrown from the vehicle. She suffered multiple broken bones and multiple surgeries for tears and fractures. She was among 10 cruise guests injured on the tour.

Her injuries did not happen on the cruise, but the activity was set up through Carnival. Because of this, she has argued that the two companies are so closely tied that she was not aware that the tour was put on by a separate company.

This is not an uncommon case. Many injured

Good Reasons to Take a Repositioning Cruise

Looking for a unique cruise that can potentially save you a bundle? In this post, we’ll tell you how repositioning cruises could work for you.

What Is a Repositioning Cruise?

Cruise lines need to relocate their ships to different ports during the off-season. Since summer and winter are peak seasons for traditional cruises, repositioning cruises are often held in the spring or fall.

A repositioning cruise is a one-way trip between two locations, such as Alaska and the Caribbean. Cruise companies offer this option for customers who want a cheaper price.

Repositioning cruises are often longer than typical cruises. They involve fewer port stops and are often less crowded. They often feature other perks like free wi-fi connections and additional onboard programming for the longer voyage.
