In the recent case of Sampson v. Carnival Corporation decided by the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida, the court held that a passenger who slipped on the deck of the ship had stated a claim that was sufficient to go to trial. The passenger indicated that she slipped on the ship’s wet deck when it was dark and there was nothing that warned her of any potential danger. She also noted that there were crewmembers rolling up hoses before she fell.
