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.

Reasons to Consider Taking a Repositioning Cruise

Ways to Get the Most Culture Out of Your Cruise Vacation

When you imagine a cruise, what comes to mind?

The open sea, obviously. Relaxing on a white sand beach somewhere? Tanning on the deck of the ship while you sip a martini? Mountains and mountains of food? A giant floating shopping mall where people enjoy duty-free purchases?

If these thoughts make you cringe rather than salivate, you might not think cruising is for you. Sadly, cruise lines probably aren’t exactly endearing themselves to you, either when you read stories like this, which recently appeared in the LA Times:

The Carnival Horizon, which just took its first voyage earlier in 2018, has a two-story shopping mall on board. It features brands like Kate Spade, Michael Kors, Victoria’s Secret, Le Vian jewelry, Hublot, and Breitling, as well as deluxe offerings for beauty products, fragrances, sweets, liquors, and tobacco. Since last year, Carnival has renovated shopping
