Can I File a Lawsuit against the Cruise Ship in a Court near My Home?
Generally speaking, no. The passenger ticket that you purchase has a provision in it that selects a forum where you have to file. It's selected by the cruise lines. Typically it is in Miami for Carnival, Norwegian Cruise Lines, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. For the other major cruise lines, some of them are in California or in the state of Washington. You need to consult your ticket and look at it carefully.
