Swimming pools, water slides, and hot tubs are one of the many amenities offered to guests aboard luxury cruise liners. Since cruise ships are filled with large crews, passengers are often lulled into a false sense of safety thinking that these areas are well-supervised. Unfortunately, several major cruise lines do not employ lifeguards to protect the safety of their guests, leading to devastating and oftentimes fatal swimming pool accidents involving passengers and their children. If you or a loved one has been injured in a swimming pool accident aboard a cruise ship, you may have grounds to file a civil claim in pursuit of full and fair compensation.
At the J. Guerra Law Firm, our swimming pool accident lawyer has represented countless drowning and near-drowning accident victims nationwide.

Types and Causes of Swimming Pool Accidents on Cruise Ships
Despite these known dangers, the cruise industry as a whole has done little to protect passengers against the risks of swimming pool injuries and continues to gamble on their safety. Unfortunately, this has led to tragic results, with several drowning and near-drowning accidents having occurred aboard ships such as the Disney Fantasy, Norwegian Breakaway, and several Royal Caribbean cruise liners. Those who are lucky enough to survive these incidents are oftentimes left with permanent injuries and are forced to endure a lifetime of disability, such as brain damage from near-drowning or spinal cord injury from diving in shallow water.
Cruise ship swimming pool accidents can be caused by any of the following:
- Lack of sufficient safety equipment
- Overcrowded pools
- Missing safety lines designating shallow and deep ends
- Broken or missing covers on pool drains
- Negligent lifeguards
- Insufficient warning signs against diving
Depending on the circumstances, injured parties and their dependents may be able to recover compensation for losses related to medical expenses, reduced quality of life, pain and suffering, lost future income, and wrongful death. Our firm can review the circumstances surrounding your injuries and help you pursue maximum financial recovery.
