Can cruise lines be held liable for injuries that occur during docking excursions?
Cruise ship excursions are commonly offered by cruise lines, but that does not mean the cruise line is responsible for everything that happens when passengers are on the shore. Liability for excursion injuries will often depend on the cruise line’s involvement with the shore activities. It’s important to read your excursion ticket carefully in order to know if the cruise line is running the activity/tour or if another party is responsible.
Determining who may be at fault for an injury that occurs while docked on shore can be confusing. As such, it is important to seek the help of a knowledgeable attorney from Louis A. Vucci P.A. by calling (786) 375-0344.
