The Importance of Reading Your Cruise Ship Contract
When you decide to take a vacation on a cruise ship, you often sign paperwork agreeing to certain terms. Some people are so eager to finalize plans for their vacation that they fail to fully read the conditions to which they are agreeing. This can become extremely frustrating when an incident occurs on the cruise ship that would warrant a lawsuit. The lawyers at Louis A. Vucci, P.A. know how challenging and complicated the legal process can be for those harmed on cruise ships, and are willing to help you work to understand these limitations and technicalities.
Hidden Terms in Cruise Ship Contracts
There are typically terms within the contracts that passengers sign which limit the liability of the cruise ship company. These terms can make taking legal action extremely difficult. Some of the most common hidden clauses include:
- Limited liability clauses
- Changing destination schedule without warning
- Shortened statute of limitations
- Limiting claims to one state’s court (i.e Florida)
These hidden terms often catch passengers by surprise when they are attempting to bring a case against the cruise ship company in the event of an injury, theft, or other type of claim.
