Chapter 6 (Page no: 106)

Passengers and risk: health, wellbeing and liability.

This chapter explores 3 issues that may explain some possible causes of dissatisfaction among cruise ship passengers: illness outbreaks (e.g. Norovirus infection transmitted via food or person-to-person transmission), onboard crime (e.g. theft, assault and sexual assault), and health services (including liability for medical care). This chapter provides information that may help passengers, staff and crew to take steps to protect their safety, security and health. An awareness of crime makes it easier to take steps for crime prevention, knowledge of how illness outbreaks begin and progress makes it easier to take steps to avoid illness, and having a clear set of expectations of the nature of health care on a cruise ship allows one to make informed decisions.
