Brett Rivkind interviewed on CBS News regarding the horrible shore excursion bus crash accident involving cruise ship passengers in Mexico. Eleven passengers were killed in the bus crash during the excursion sold by Royal Caribbean and Celebrity. We are currently handling a similar type of case against the exact same cruise ship company involving a tour bus accident in New Zealand.There are dangers associated with excursions the cruise lines do not warn about or do enough to address them for the safety of their passengers. Rather, they promote, sell and profit from these excursions and insist passengers only buy excursions from them.
