Princess Cruises Ships

Princess Cruises was founded in 1965 in order to send cruises from Los Angeles to the Mexican Riviera and has grown over the years. It was eventually bought by Carnival Cruise Line, and though it boasts of quality amenities and great deals, it also has seen its fair share of passenger and crew cases.

Princess Cruises manages a fleet of ships, all of which should be held liable for damages if they are found guilty of negligence:

  • Royal Princess
  • Regal Princess
  • Grand Princess
  • Golden Princess
  • Star Princess
  • Diamond Princess
  • Sapphire Princess
  • Caribbean Princess
  • Crown Princess
  • Emerald Princess
  • Ruby Princess
  • Coral Princess
  • Island Princess
  • Sun Princess
  • Sea Princess
  • Majestic Princess
  • Sky Princess

Common accidents that take place aboard cruise line ships include injuries to both passengers and workers, asbestos injuries, sexual assault, drowning, falling overboard, shore excursion accidents, and now accidents relating to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Past Princess Cruises Accidents

Over the last several years, Princess Cruises has seen their fair share of accidents resulting in lawsuits filed against the company.

Crown Princess Accidents

The Crown Princess, one of the cruise ships that sail under the Princess Cruises line, garnered attention for numerous incidents that have caused illness or serious injury to passengers aboard. One notorious incident occurred around a month after its maiden voyage in the summer of 2006. Crew members reportedly had trouble controlling the ship as it began making unexpected, rolling motions. Passengers were violently knocked down or struck by falling debris, sustaining injuries such as bruises, abrasions, and even fractures. While Princess Cruises acknowledged this incident by offering refunds to passengers, they attributed the incident to crew member error, failing to take true responsibility for the injuries.

Another, more recent, incident on Crown Princess occurred in 2014. There was an outbreak of norovirus, which affected over 170 people. This is a stomach illness that is highly contagious and commonly occurs on cruise ships, where hundreds of people are housed in a concentrated area.

Pacific Princess Accidents

In 2016 the Pacific Princess hit a breakwater wall at the port of Nice due to unexpected wind conditions. The ship was forced to disembark and cancel the remainder of the cruise. Later that same year there was an incident with a crew member who fell down an elevator shaft and suffered serious injuries.

In 2004, 2006, and 2007 the Pacific Princess experienced several norovirus outbreaks among both crew and passengers, resulting in passengers and crew being confined to their cabins for several days.
