Injured While on a Cruise Ship Tender Boat?

Injuries on a cruise vacation don’t always happen aboard the cruise ship itself. Sometimes they occur on the cruise ship’s tender boats. A tender (or shuttle) is a boat that the cruise line uses to take passengers from the big cruise ship to the dock – and then back to the ship. While this type of transportation is generally safe, accidents can occur.

Attempting to board or get off a tender can lead to injury. While some cruise ships are able to park right alongside of the dock at many ports, it is not uncommon for them to be parked in a bay hundreds of yards from the dock. Accidents happen when passengers lose their balance and fall. This can result in head injuries, back injuries, broken bones and the potential for falling into the water.

The Cruise Line May Be Responsible For Your Injury

Tender vessels are much smaller than the cruise ship and with the movement of the ocean, the tender can bang up against the cruise ship causing injuries to occur. The same thing can happen as the tender navigates around other boats in a busy port or attempts to dock. The experience of the crew piloting the tender can also play a role in the safety of the passengers.

Was it a Simple Accident or Negligence?

It’s unfortunate, but people get hurt on cruise ships each and every day. Many accidents are simply ‘just accidents’ while other accidents are due to the negligence of the cruise line, its employees or even other entities associated with and promoted by the cruise line (like onboard medical personnel or excursion operators).
