Good News For Local Communities
Recently Carnival Cruise Lines announced new voyages that will be traveling to Cuba beginning in June of 2017. Carnival also states that these cruises will depart from Tampa Bay. This is good news for local communities such as Clearwater, Tampa, St. Petersburg, Sarasota, etc., who’s passengers have close access to a port offering such cruises. It is also good for people throughout Florida wanting to line up a cruise to Cuba possibly before the Trump administration changes U.S. policy regarding the relationship with Cuba.
However, please do recall that if you are injured on one of Carnival’s cruise ships — even if it departed from Tampa — that if you may have to file suit against Carnival. By the cruise line’s policies, this process will most likely have to be done in Miami. This is known in your ticket book as the “forum selection clause.” If you have any questions about Carnival’s “forum selection clause”, a cruise ship injuries attorney can help you.
