First, for claims involving personal injury, illness or wrongful death, you must file a written notice of claim that includes a full statement of the facts and legal claims you intend to assert within six months of the date of the injury, illness or accident giving rise to the claim. You must provide said written notice not only to the cruise line but also to third parties such as a shore excursion company that may be responsible for acts giving rise to personal injury, illness and or wrongful death.
Second, you must actually file your lawsuit within one year after the date of the injury, illness or accident.
