Dec 30th 2012 7:44PM Chris this is an excellent post. And you are correct, cruise ships are constantly rearranging itineraries when ports become too dangerous.
Last week a US passenger died in Dominica on a shore excursion. My heart goes out to this man and his family. These type of on shore excursion accidents occur more frequently than most passengers know. I am a cruise accident lawyer in Miami and have fought cruise lines for over 20 years. They are very clever in attempting to insulate themselves from any liability for passenger accidents and death that occur in Port. Most cruise-lines, including Vision of the Seas promote on shore excursions to passengers. But in the fine print of every excursion contract are legal disclaimers making it nearly impossible to hold the cruise companies liable. I question whether CPR and other life saving equipment was available for this man. I hope that this incident does not discourage people from visiting these tropical paradises. But it should serve as a warning to other passengers to be very careful while on shore.

Do research on line and find out if the doctor is in fact a real doctor and has the credentials to do what he is offering to do.
Lastly, nothing in life is for free. Especially laser hair removal. Never, ever agree to a "free treatment". Thanks, Spencer Aronfeld
