Do You Know What to Do If Injured on a Holiday Cruise Excursion?

Shore excursions are often the highlight of a cruise, and ports of call offer a chance to disembark, sightsee, and take in the local culture. Shore excursions can also be dangerous and unpredictable, so tragedies can (and do) happen.

Take three North Texans, for instance, who were recently killed in two separate traffic crashes while on shore excursions on the same cruise. Multiple family members were involved in both crashes, and surviving family members sustained critical injuries.

Unfortunately, shore excursion accidents are actually relatively common during cruises. If you’ll be embarking on a holiday cruise this season, it’s important to know what to do in the event of a shore excursion accident.

First, the most common shore excursion accidents…

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 charges of negligent homicide for his role in her death.

Are Grandfather’s Charges in Granddaughter’s Cruise Death Valid?

Experts are split on whether the

Some of the Best World Cruises Available in 2020

Cruises are a wonderful and enriching experience. There is something so timeless and thrilling about hopping on board for an adventure.

You can explore a new part of the country or sail across the sea to a new part of the world. But what if you want to see the whole world in one cruise? It’s possible.

World cruises offer the best of the best when it comes to the cruise experience. Check out our list of the best world cruises available in 2020.

What Is a “World” Cruise?

World cruises take the traditional idea of a cruise vacation and turn it up a few notches. They take you to multiple countries and/or continents. Cruise lengths vary.

While some only last three weeks and take you to a handful of island nations, others last up to 245 days. You read that right – that’s

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.

Why You Should Consider a Winter Cruise – And Where to Go

Summer is winding down and the temperatures are finally starting to drop. For many families, this new season means putting their noses to the grindstone. No more vacations, no more trips to the beach.

For some families, the cooler temperatures are a signal to pack their bags. Winter vacations, and specifically winter cruises, can be even more relaxing than the typical summer trip away. If you’re still looking to get away in the next few months, consider getting away via boat.

Why Go on a Winter Cruise

A winter cruise can be a good change of pace, but there are also practical reasons to set sail in December-March.

The kids are back in school during the colder months, and parents may be hesitant to pull them out for seven days in the Cayman Islands. Take advantage of the

Cruise Lines: The Surprise Heroes of the Aftermath of Dorian

Hurricane Dorian was the latest Category 5 storm to hit the East Coast. While Floridians braced themselves for a big hit, the real victims of the storm were the people of the Bahamas.

Fifty Bahamians died in the storm, with over 1,000 people missing and 15,000 in need of medical care. Another 70,000 citizens were rendered homeless.

Perhaps not surprisingly, the President made a statement on Twitter saying that the hurricane victims could be “very bad people,” and refused to grant them Temporary Protected Status.

Fortunately, another group has come in to provide aid to the devastated island…and it may not be who you expect.

Who is it? Cruise lines.
