The accident happened while the ship was in international waters. Does that matter?
A: No, it does not matter. The general maritime law of the United States holds the cruise ship responsible and liable if they were negligent. That means whether the cruise line failed to use reasonable care under the circumstances. If that caused or contributed to your injury, regardless of the location of the incident, international or United States waters cruise line will be responsible.
