News report: Norwegian Cruise Line lied to customers about COVID-19 risks
On March 11, 2020, the Miami New Times published an article that details leaked internal emails showing that Norwegian Cruise Line managers instructed sales representatives to mislead customers about the risks of COVID-19 to sell cruise tickets. The Times said,
”For instance, cruise bookers were instructed to tell potential customers that “[t]he Coronavirus can only survive in cold temperatures, so the Caribbean is a fantastic choice for your next cruise.”
An employee of Norwegian also reportedly told the Times that “some managers have asked sales staff to lie to customers about COVID-19 to protect the company’s bookings.” If you called or emailed Norwegian Cruise Line with concerns about COVID-19, you may have a claim.
CDC warns US travelers to avoid cruises, such as Norwegian Cruise Lines, citing high coronavirus risk
Because the coronavirus is known to spread between people in close quarters, the CDC took the unusual step on March 17, 2020 of warning US travelers to avoid all cruise travel. The Miami New Times notes, “Cruise ships have long been called floating petri dishes. And COVID-19, the illness caused by the novel coronavirus, means rough seas ahead for the cruise industry.”
Passengers have fallen ill and died as cruise ships become the sites of epidemics. In response, ports have denied vessels entry, travelers have canceled trips and the largest cruise companies in the world have suspended operations.
At this time, Norwegian Cruise Line continues to operate, at least in the Caribbean.
If you contracted COVID-19 on a Norwegian Cruise Line cruise, you may be entitled to compensation.
