With 23 cruise ships and millions of passengers each year, accidents are bound to occur around the pool, in restaurants, in cabins and other areas of the cruise ship. Some are simply “just accidents” and others are caused because of the negligent actions of the cruise line or its crew members.
Royal Caribbean Cruise slip and fall injuries often include:
- Head injuries and concussions
- Knee injuries
- Back injuries, slipped disks, herniated disks, etc.
- Broken bones – fingers, wrists, arms, legs, ankles

Many of these injuries can be quite serious, involving visits to doctors and hospitals, complicated medical procedures, surgery and rehabilitation. They can also involve troubles with insurance claims and missed time at work (equaling missed salary or earning potential).
