The simple fact is, an accident or injury or illness will occur on a cruise ship on every cruise line.
With over 17 million people traveling on cruise ships each year, the chance of a serious injury exists – and injury from physical assault, sexual assault, trips, falls and alcohol related accidents is more common than people think.
Am I at risk?
And these chances are increased when negligence on the part of the cruise lines or their crew occurs.

- obey the rules of the ship
- heed warnings when posted
- reduce alcohol intake if possible
- keep a watchful eye on your children and teens
