Cruise Ship Safety – File Your Cruise Ship Assault Lawsuit Here

Maritime Law

While many people go on cruise trips in order to experience different cultures at the different ports of call that they will visit in different locations, most travelers think nothing of their safety, and just go by the assumption that the cruise ship has hired individuals that will ensure their safety. In addition, many cruise ship passengers are of the opinion that because security checks are done prior to boarding, nothing will happen to them. This couldn’t be further from the truth, as many stories of both physical and sexual assault on cruise ships come out with frightening regularity but are often not reported by mainstream or traditional media given the niche product that cruise ships are. If you are a regular cruise ship enthusiast, it is vital that you take the needed steps to keep yourself safe and not just go on the assumption that everything will be okay just because the ship captain assures you of the same.

Here are some tips to help you stay safe on a cruise ship:

  1. Stay Vigilant

Cruise ship surroundings can imbue you with a false sense of security. Wherever you are on the ship, be aware of your surroundings and if something just doesn’t feel right, remove yourself from the location or have a friend or able-bodied individual accompany you. Be wary of any spaces where the lighting isn’t so great, or any floors or rooms that aren’t frequented as many people, as gang rapes on cruise ships have been known to occur.  In addition, always keep your cabin door locked, and don’t open it to anyone, even a crewmember, before checking with reception. Lastly, know the individual traveling with you if you’ve planned a meeting with someone else anywhere on the ship so they always know where you are in the event that you can’t be found many hours later.

  1. Preserve Evidence, Report Incident

It is vital that you let the authorities know if something happens to you, and this includes cruise security, the U.S. Coast Guard, as well as the FBI. Don’t just however rely on cruise security, and make sure to file multiple reports even when you feel traumatized or intimidated as this kind of evidence will help you when filing a lawsuit. Last, but certainly not least, make sure that you don’t discard of any torn or bloody clothing or any strands of hair and other pieces of vital evidence as this will prove definitively that you were indeed assaulted on the cruise ship.
