Hurricane Season Is Starting – Is It Safe to Cruise?

Ah, Summer cruising. A great time to get away with the family. To lay out on deck and soak in the sun. To run into… hurricanes?

That’s right. If you’re considering taking a cruise during this time, you can’t forget that it’s also hurricane season in the Atlantic. The season runs from June to November, and peaks between mid-August and early November.

Should you be worried? Should you postpone your trip? What happens if a hurricane pops up while a cruise is in the vicinity?

If you want to take a summer cruise in the Atlantic and you’re concerned about safety, you’re not alone. Fortunately, it is complete safe to cruise then. Cruising during hurricane season doesn’t need to be avoided – in fact, it may actually be the best time to take a cruise.

That said, there are some things to know before

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 happened. However, this might not be the smartest course of action, because there’s a decent chance that the slip-and-fall was not your fault.

$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 on two of their ships. For the time being, no one else will be at risk of falling like the plaintiff did.

What Cruise Ship Crews Do to Fight Norovirus

Norovirus – better known as the “cruise ship virus” – is an extremely contagious stomach bug. You can get it not only directly from an infected person, but also from contaminated food or water, or even by touching contaminated surfaces. Typically, norovirus comes with symptoms like severe stomach pain, nausea, and often violent diarrhea and vomiting. When not properly treated, it can lead to dehydration and even hospitalization.

Why is it common on cruises?

Because a cruise ship is basically a giant petri dish, with a bunch of people crammed into a relatively tiny space, with nowhere to go to escape. When research shows how even just a few sick people can send millions of microscopic virus particles through the air and across surrounding surfaces, it’s easy to see how it could spread rapidly on a cruise.

The good news is that the US
