Know your rights
Tour operators and Cruise line operators are legally required to uphold and maintain the highest standards of health and safety for passengers on board. Failure to do so can and does lead to claims being pursued against them, which is why the majority of cruise line and tour operators rely on the Athens Convention.
What is the Athens Convention?
The Athens Convention operates in favour of cruise ship passengers as it imposes a presumption of the carrier, meaning it must prove the illness or injury you have sustained wasn’t their fault. It also imposes limits on the amount of compensation that can be claimed for personal injury, or in the event of a fatality.
