    Stress free claims in Southampton


    Making stress free claims in Southampton

    The port of Southampton has long been associated with the luxury cruise line market. Many of the largest cruise ships in the world have been seen in the port and what is more, Southampton is the home to the company headquarters of a large and famous cruise company.

    Many people dream of cruising as the ideal luxury holiday. Unlike other boats and ships, the purpose of a cruise is not necessarily to go any where in particular, but to enjoy the experience of being on board a ship. Some planned holiday cruises do not even have any ports of call! For this reason, cruise holidays are often considered as floating hotels. Depending on the cruise, a wide variety of services are available in addition to the usual entertainment and dining. These services may include swimming pools, ice skating rinks and climbing walls as well as gyms, cinema, shopping experiences and basketball courts. Frequently on a cruise, the total number of staff exceed the total number of passengers. The staff are generally employed on a three to nine monthly contact. While the base pay rate may be considered low, the benefits include free accommodation and food as well as the opportunity to travel while on the cruise.

    When things go well on a cruise holiday it truly can be classified as the holiday experience of a lifetime. However when things go badly, they can cause the affected passenger or passengers much stress and trauma. For example if you suffer an injury in an accident that was not your fault while on a cruise, while you will receive immediate medical attention from the ships medical team. But if you require more complex and immediate intervention, you may be required to leave the ship. This may entail an uncomfortable boat trip or even a helicopter lift. What is more, you may have to leave family behind while you are being treated, and your injury may even mean that you cannot return on board and have to cut short your trip. Other unfortunate cruise experiences can include norovirus, a particularly nasty contagious virus that can plague cruises.

    Of course it is possible to be injured or to fall ill anywhere at any time. You don’t even need to leave Southampton to be involved in a no fault accident.
