Are lifeguards responsible for supervising my children at the pool?
It depends on the cruise ship and its rules and regulations. On some cruise ships, lifeguard supervision is not mandated, so parents assume the risk of their children being at the pools. On the other hand, a cruise ship may provide lifeguards and supervision at the pools, which could make them liable for the consequences of a child being injured. It’s important to keep in mind that in order for a person to file a lawsuit in this situation that the lifeguard or cruise ship staff must have acted negligently in some and, as a result, caused the injury or accident to occur.
