I have often written about the problems with shore excursions during a cruise, and the dangers a passenger may face. The most recent bus crash that occurred in the Bahamas happened during a Carnival Cruise Line shore excursion. Four people were seriously injured during this bus accident, which involved a single vehicle incident, the bus itself flipping over. This has happened in previous cases we have handled and is typically a result of the unsafe practices and procedures the shore excursion companies are engaging in.
The crash involved thirty-two passengers from the Carnival Ecstasy ship. The bus was on an excursion in Eleuthera. According to news reports, Eleuthera Adventure Tours Limited operated the tour bus involved in the accident. Four passengers were airlifted to Florida for further treatment.
