Cruise ships and COVID-19

As the coronavirus pandemic – Covid-19 – spreads across the globe, infections on cruise ships are attracting significant attention.

A number of deaths appear to be linked directly to illness which may have been contracted on cruise ships.

Questions are being raised over whether cruise companies have breached health and safety regulations, infection control protocols and other restrictions.

The laws that apply to claims for compensation arising from the negligence of cruise companies can be complex and varied. Factors such as the cruise booking process are relevant.

Stacks Goudkamp urges any cruise passengers adversely impacted by the coronavirus crisis to seek specialist legal advice as soon as possible.

It is important to be aware that there are short and strict deadlines for initiating claims for compensation and you should act quickly and seek specialist legal advice as soon as you can.

For further information on cruise ship claims, enquiries can be made to Stacks Goudkamp’s Sydney office on 1800 251 800 or by submitting an online enquiry.
