About 4 years ago a Princess ship had a sharp turn which was eventually attributed to improper actions by a bridge officer. Two years after the fact - and despite being told by Princess that they had a 1 year limit to file a lawsuit - a family filed suit in California. They were a year out of date. They appealed it using a variety of excuses. The Appellate Court recently not only rejected the appeal as frivolous, they also sanctioned the cruisers by requiring them to pay over $6000 to Princess Cruises to compensate the cruise line for their legal costs.

So be warned - read the cruise contract before you sue.
