As with any other type of physical activity, injuries and even death can result if the cruise ship passenger is not properly supervised or if defective equipment or inadequate instruction is provided. There is no reason for accidents like this to occur.
Cruise ships earn significant revenue from the shore excursions, which they generally contract out for with local companies. If you are injured during a shore excursion you should be aware that the cruise line may also have liability along with the local tour operator. Often time the tour operator has not even been safety audited by the cruise line. Y
You should be alarmed if the local tour operator, who has little if no contact with the United States (other than through contracts with cruise lines such as Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Disney Cruise Lines, Crystal, Seabourn Cruise Lines, Norwegian Cruise Lines, Princess or Holland America) attempts to avoid liability – your attorney will be able to quickly analyze your situation and determine whether the tour operator bears responsibility.
Not having the proper equipment, faulty or inadequate supervision, poor driving resulting in bus or tour vehicle accident are all reasons to discuss your injuries with an attorney who can give you the proper advice regarding recovery for your injuries. These injuries just should not be happening and the cruise lines often bear responsibility for their failure to supervise properly the operations of these local tour operators.
