Tour boats and cruise boat operators owe their passengers a duty of reasonable care under the circumstances to protect the passengers from injury. The reality is that this is a heightened duty of care; most cruise passengers are unfamiliar with shipboard life and equipment. Accidents can easily and quickly happen aboard a ship or small tour boat. A slippery, wet, or icy deck, loose carpet, unsafe gangways, and defective or broken equipment can quickly lead to a lifelong injury. The vessel operators must be particularly careful to protect their elderly passengers form injury.Injured? Get In Touch With Our Firm.
