UNSAFE ON THE HIGH SEAS: Keep You & Your Family Safe

The idea behind taking a cruising vacation is to relax and leave your worries behind.
But after all the news about dramatic cruise vessel mishaps, such as the Costa Concordia grounding, as well as frequent headlines about sexual assaults and shipboard viral outbreaks, can cruising really be that carefree?

Well, in a word: yes.

The best way to relax on your cruise is to do your homework before you go. Preparation involves more than just shopping for the best cruise deal and price. It means knowing, well in advance, about the dangers and types of incidents that can and do occur at sea. Educating yourself on how to prevent and respond to a maritime injury or assault is essential to your safety. Unsafe on the High Seas is a best-selling book by Charles Lipcon, one of the industry’s most recognized and experienced cruise lawyers, which offers a behind-the-scenes insight into the cruise industry.

Unsafe on the High Seas Reviews and Recommendations

Below is praise from readers of this cruise ship lawyer classic.

  • “Having been the victim of a cruise ship crime (my cabin was robbed!), I wish that I had had the opportunity to read this book before going on that cruise years ago. I was laboring under the false security assumption that going on a cruise would be like stepping on to the Love Boat – a luxurious and safe getaway. Boy, was I wrong.”
  • “… (M)any horrible things happen on cruise ships every day, but they get swept under the rug. … Unsafe on the High Seas is a book that needs to be read by anyone wanting to go on a cruise.”
  • “Just got back from a cruise and wish I had read this book before I went. The cruise industry makes everything look so functional and organized, when really it is just a cover-up.”
  • “I think this should be required reading before going on any cruise.”
