The cruise line industry revenue is estimated to be around $53 billion with over 26 million passengers annually. Carnival Corporation alone recorded 2018 revenues of $20.8 billion. Royal Caribbean Cruises reported over $9 billion in revenues. Despite the United States Center for Disease Control (CDC) requiring cruise companies to present plans to prevent, mitigate and respond to the spread of COVID-19, thousands of passengers and crew became infected during coronavirus pandemic. Despite the first report of the COVID-19 outbreak on a cruise ship in Japan, the cruise line industry did nothing to curtail their voyages. Cruise ships, considered incubators for infection due to the influx of people from all over the world, increase exposure to new environments, tight sleeping quarters and limited medical resources continued their sea voyages despite placing their passengers and crew members in danger. All these risks heightened the risk and rapid spread of the SARS-CoV-2 disease. The Carnival Cruise line and Royal Caribbean Cruises have been named in several cruise ship coronavirus wrongful death lawsuits stemming the Covid19 outbreak on their cruise ships after the potentially deadly virus began to spread around the world. Mitigating damages could have included social distancing and supplied facial masks for everyone.
The Cruise Line International Association (CLIA) claims cruise lines supply ample amount of hand sanitizers, regularly disinfect common touched surfaces multiple times a day, and have strict laundry protocols. In addition, after a cruise ends and before the next passenger arrives, ships are cleaned in its entirety. Unfortunately and overwhelming invasion of the coronavirus prevailed on cruise line ships. Why weren’t additional safety measures taken after learning of the COVID-19 outbreak on the Diamond Princess. Unfortunately, the cruise line industry did nothing to curtail their voyages at sea despite the efforts of the U.S. health officials. The CLIA reports that additional long-term changes on ships are being considered. These plans include additional screening requirements and enhanced sanitation measures, rapid COVID-19 testing and wearing masks on board. Social distancing and limited amount of people in restaurants and theatres is being considered. Improving the air filtration systems may benefit. There are dozens of lawsuits filed by passengers and family members of loved ones against the cruise ship lines and the coronavirus alleging mishandled virus response which resulted in serious and personal injury and wrongful death across the U.S.
More than 100 United States citizens working on cruise lines remain stranded at sea since mid March 2020. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) is requiring the cruise clines have a set plan to safely bring them home to their family members and follow proper quarantine. Carnival Cruise Lines recently announced they plan to resume some voyages with eight of their vessels from United States ports. These cruise ships are preparing to resume in August after the Center for Disease Control (CDC) “no sailing” order expires. Carnival Cruise Lines states they supplemented a plan to the CDC and will implement changes including temperature checks, denied boarding without proper medical notes and no individual plating food. In addition to the Carnival Cruise Lines listed are other cruise line companies expected to open up sea voyage cruises. Call us anytime for a free wrongful death consultation.
