Royal Caribbean International Cruise Lines is owned by Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. The cruise line operates out of Miami, Florida and controls close to 20 percent of the worldwide cruise market. Known for naming its ships with the phrase “Of the Seas” at the end of each name, Royal Caribbean has close to 30 ships either currently operating or commissioned for construction in the future. Since Royal Caribbean International was first founded in 1968 in Norway by three shipping companies, the cruise line has grown substantially and now owns not only cruise ships but also two private island destinations: Labadee and Coco Cay.
Royal Caribbean boasts that it has received a Travel Weekly Readers’ Choice Award for 13 years running, but unfortunately, while the company publicizes its successes, it makes no mention on its website of the numerous lawsuits brought against the cruise line resulting from various allegations of problems aboard its ships.
Lipcon, Margulies, Alsina & Winkleman, P.A. has successfully represented passengers and crewmembers injured aboard Royal Caribbean literally hundreds of times. Notably, LMAW, P.A. is currently representing more than 300 passengers taking part in a proposed class action case against Royal Caribbean based on the Anthem of the Seas knowingly and intentionally sailing into the path of a hurricane.
