In the last decade, the cruise experience alone does not work in the economically fierce competition for cruise passengers which has forced all the major cruise lines to turn the travel cruise experience into an “amusement park”.
Clear examples of various injuries and death resulting from on-board activities and excursions have risen dramatically, as the cruise ship industry fails to provide true safety. For instance, the industry has refused to provide lifeguards even though there have been numerous drownings in the cruise ship pools. The industry has added a number of excursions even though many are not supervised and present a real danger and jeopardy to the cruise passengers and families.
Excursions include private trips to islands owned by cruise lines as well as utilizing off shore activities such as parasailing, jet skiing, boating, scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, jeep and bus tours, zip-lining, etc.
