Anyone and everyone who practices maritime law involving cruise ships knows Judge Thomas Dickerson.
For years he has written the definitive collection of law cases involving what can go wrong on cruise ships and during international vacations.
My alma mater Tulane School of Law just published one of his amazing articles entitled The Cruise Passenger’s Rights and Remedies 2014: The COSTA CONCORDIA Disaster: One Year Later, Many More Incidents Both on Board Megaships and During Risky Shore Excursions.
Our blog is often criticized by cruise fans who claim that we are focusing (unfairly) on all of the bad things that happen on cruise ships on the high seas. Actually, we are just touching upon the tip of the iceberg.
After reading Judge Dickerson’s law review article you can begin to understand the extent of what can go wrong on what should be a fun, relaxing family vacation.
You can also appreciate how the cruise industry has severely limited your rights.
