Cruises can be a great way to explore many islands and countries whilst travelling in luxury. However, like all ships, it may be luxurious but if the ocean or sea is rough then it can still be a bit of a bumpy ride. Turbulent cruises at times are the ones that sail around the Mediterranean.
What types of travel accidents happen on a Mediterranean cruise?
There are quite a few different travel accidents that can happen whilst aboard a turbulent Mediterranean cruise. One such potential travel injury which could be sustained comes in the form of slips, trips and falls. A rocky boat can mean you feel a bit more off balance which can mean a travel accident is more likely.
Also, another travel accident which is more likely on a turbulent cruise is sea sickness. The choppier the sea the higher the risk of such travel accidents as being ill especially if you have a sensitive stomach.
How to prevent a travel accident claim on a cruise?
It is difficult to prevent turbulence on a Mediterranean cruise unless you can control the weather. However, there are a few things to help prevent a travel accident occurring. Firstly, when the sea is choppier avoid walking around the deck too much. The most likely location to have a trip and sustain a travel injury is on the outside deck so avoid this area as much as you can.
Also, if you know you get sea sick make sure you take the appropriate medication. You can get all types of things to help prevent getting ill from pills to wrist bands so find what works for you to avoid illness.
Accidents can and do still happen whilst on a cruise whether it is turbulent or not. If you have had a travel accident within the last 3 years that wasn’t your fault you may be able to make a claim.
