Carnival Cruise Line

Lipcon, Margulies, Alsina & Winkleman, P.A

Carnival Cruise Line is an American owned cruise company that is headquartered in Doral, Florida, a suburb of Miami. Carnival Cruise Lines was founded in 1972 as an independent company, but it is now part of a massive cruise conglomerate owned by Carnival Corporation & PLC. Carnival is the largest of the cruise brands owned by Carnival Corporation & PLC, which also owns Costa Cruises and the Holland America line.

Carnival describes itself as “The World’s Most Popular Cruise Line®,” however the company has come under fire for allegedly providing very low pay and minimal benefits to crew members while requiring 14-hour shifts with no days off. The potential for injury among crew members is high under such conditions, as is the possibility crew members will be unable to provide a safe environment for passengers. Both cruise line workers and passengers need to know their rights if problems develop aboard a Carnival ship.

No matter the ship and no matter the destination, every passenger and crew member is entitled to expect the ship will be reasonably safe for them. If there is a failure on the part of Carnival Cruise Lines to offer a safe traveling environment, both on the ship and off, crew members and passengers may pursue a claim for damages.
