What rights does a passenger have if they are injured on a cruise ship?
A: As a passenger, if you've been injured on a cruise ship, you have the right to bring a claim against the cruise line for its negligence. The cruise line is held to the standard of reasonable care under the circumstances. What does this mean? If the cruise line has failed to clean up a spill within a reasonable amount of time, if it's failed to rope off a dangerous area, these are the types of things that a court could find that the cruise line has acted negligently or was negligent in its failure to act and it would be responsible for your injury.
