Carnival Splendor Cruise Lawyers: Reviewing Passenger Lawsuits

The lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are reviewing potential Carnival Splendor passenger lawsuits for individuals who were stranded on the cruise ship following a fire in the engine room. As a result of apparent negligence, recklessness and a lack of preparation for such a foreseeable event, passengers may be entitled to compensation for injuries and other damages.


Our Carnival Splendor cruise ship lawyers have already spoken with several passengers who were left adrift at sea for about four days. Passengers have reported that they were not fully informed about the problems on the ship, breathed smoke and other fumes for days, were provided little food or water and suffered from panic attacks, fear and fright as a result of this situation, which may have been preventable. In addition, many passengers have suffered economic loss as a result of the ruined vacation and lost wages.

Following the Carnival Splendor fire on November 8, 2010, the cruise ship was left without operable toilets for a period of time and no air conditioning to circulate the air, resulting in foul smells throughout the ship. Passengers had to wait in line for hours to obtain limited food and liquids. Black smoke filled many of the hallways following the fire, and passengers were exposed to the fumes until they reached port on November 11 and were able to leave the ship.

While Carnival Cruise Lines has indicated that they will reimburse passengers for the cost of their ticket and other resulting travel expenses, and has given them a voucher for a free cruise in the future, passengers may be entitled to additional compensation through a Carnival Splendor lawsuit.
