Inadequate Security During an Excursion
Cruise ship passengers participating in shore excursions rightfully expect to enjoy their time with their preplanned activities like snorkeling, lunch tours, and sightseeing. However, certain destinations carry an inherent security risk, and cruise lines are expected to provide security that ensures the safety of their passengers.
Now that it seems clear that your cruise line’s lack of security allowed for a crime to be committed against you or your loved one, you should begin evaluating your legal options if you would like to pursue financial compensation from your cruise line.
Consequences of Inadequate Security
When a cruise line fails to provide adequate security, it can result in very unfortunate consequences, for instance:
- Sexual Assault
Indeed, cruise lines disclaim liability during shore excursions, but this does not protect them from the liabilities of providing adequate security. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with an attorney to determine whether you have the option to pursue litigation in the aftermath of a troubling incident that may have resulted from inadequate security.
