Should the cruise line compensate the passenger for their injury?

The simple answer is ” yes” — if the cruise line or its employees were responsible for the passenger’s injuries, then the potential for a successful injury claim — and financial recovery — does exist.

Getting to a point where it can be proven that the cruise line did something wrong — and that wrongful action resulted in the injury — can be challenging. There are other factors to consider as well.
