Our website is dedicated for the crew members on various Cruise Lines. Remember people you have Medical & Legal RIGHTS !
Don't let anyone else tell you otherwise.
As a cruise ship crew member - if you've suffered some problems,an accident or sickness while working - you are covered under the Jones Act .
The main purpose of the Jones Act is to aid seamen injured in the line of duty. Depending on your individual circumstances that means you might be eligible for lost wages, help with medical bills, help with room and lodging costs and other benefits.
It could also mean help with future wages, future medical bills and compensations for pain and suffering. These benefits may extend to your family as well.
It is important to remember that, as an employee of a cruise company, you do have legal rights and protection under the law.
