Tips if You Are Injured on a Carnival Cruise Ship

Before You Depart for your Next Carnival Cruise, Review These Tips from a Cruise Ship Lawyer

It is hard to imagine that an idyllic cruise to distant ports could be anything but the vacation of a lifetime.  You should take certain steps before you embark to ensure that you are prepared to handle any mishaps along the way.   Our cruise ship law firm offers the following tips to help you before, during and after your journey. 

Medical Attention Abroad

If you are injured on board a cruise ship, a local hospital can provide more complete care than the ship’s infirmary.  To prepare for potential injuries abroad:

  • Ask your travel agent before you go what medical treatment options will be available.
    • Is the onboard physician licensed in the United States?
    • Do the medical personnel speak English?
  • Does the ship have the capability of conducting forensic examinations in the event of a sexual assault.
  • Check if your medical insurance will provide coverage abroad.  Medical evacuation to the United States can be extremely expensive.  Many U.S. medical insurances are not accepted in other countries.  The U.S. State Department recommends that you contact your insurance provider to see if coverage applies, and, if it doesn’t, obtaining coverage that does.

Personal Safety Abroad

Traveling to foreign countries in today's security-conscious world presents unique challenges. The State Department’s website can help you become acquainted with local customs and law. The State Department provides country-specific safety information to consider before your travels as well as tips for traveling abroad.  You can also sign up for the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP), a free service by the U.S. Government to citizens traveling abroad so that the State Department can more quickly assist you in the event of an emergency.

8 Steps to Take If You Are the Victim of a Crime on a Cruise Ship

Cruise ships pack thousands of people onto one vessel. During the course of the cruise, a variety of employees, including butlers and cleaning staff, will have access to your cabin. Crimes aboard cruise ships sometimes occur. If you are the victim of a crime during the course of your cruise, you should:

  1. Immediately report, in writing, the incident to the security department on the ship.
  2. Document who you reported the crime to, when you reported it and who was with you.
  3. Obtain a copy of your written report.
  4. Take photographs of the scene of the incident before it changes, if possible. Even if the scene has changed, take photographs.
  5. Write down the name, address, and telephone number of each person who was a witness to the incident.
  6. Visit the ship's doctor to seek treatment for your injury.
  7. If necessary, visit a shore-based doctor at the next port of call.
  8. Contact an experienced lawyer to discuss the incident as soon as possible
