Accidents in Europe’s Ports & Locations

Whether you are taking a transatlantic cruise or flying to start your cruise overseas, cruising along Europe’s coastline is an unforgettable experience. With unique geographical features and cultures that date back centuries, touring Europe on a cruise ship is unlike visiting anywhere in the United States.

Lawyers for U.S. Passengers and Crewmembers Injured on European Cruises

Unfortunately, while cruising Europe is a unique experience, it presents the same risks as cruising anywhere else. Passengers and crewmembers alike face various health and safety risks onboard, and passengers often get injured while at the port and during shore excursions as well. If you have been injured on a European cruise, it is important that you speak with a lawyer as soon as possible, as taking legal action promptly can be critical for protecting your legal rights.

At Brais Law Firm, we handle cruise ship accident cases involving European cruises on behalf of passengers, crewmembers, and families. This includes cruises to:


Italy is among the most visited countries in Europe—and for a good reason. Cruises make stops at several locations along Italy’s Mediterranean and Adriatic Coasts, including Naples, Palermo, Portofino, and Venice, among others.


France is home to numerous cruise ports, with destinations located along the Bay of Biscay as well as the country’s southern coastline. Popular destinations include Ajaccio, Bordeaux, Cannes, Cherbourg, La Rochelle, Le Havre, Marseille, Monaco, Saint-Tropez, Toulon, and Villefranche.

United Kingdom

Cruising the United Kingdom affords the opportunity to visit several world-renowned locations in two countries—England and Scotland. Popular UK cruise ports include Port Dover, Port Leith, Port Greenock, Port Harwich, Port Hull, Port Liverpool, Port of Tyne, and Port Tilbury-London.


Cruises traveling to Ukraine stop at the Port of Odesa, located on the Black Sea. For those willing to climb the famous Potemkin Steps, Odessa’s city center is just a short walk away. Taxi service is available for those interested in exploring as well.


Romania’s Constanta cruise port is another popular European cruise destination on the Black Sea. Onshore options in Constanta include the Constanta Casino, Relax Beach Mamaia, and Vega Beach.


Located south of Romania, Bulgaria is a popular Black Sea cruise destination as well. European cruises typically stop at either Burgas, Nessebar or Varna.


For many travelers, a trip to Europe would not be complete without a stop in Greece. Greece provides a gateway to Macedonia, which is another European country known for its unique culture, history and geography.


With access to the Adriatic Sea at Neum, Bosnia is a mostly landlocked country situated between Croatia and Montenegro. The Port of Neum is a regular stop on many European cruise itineraries.


Located east of Bosnia, Serbia is a common European travel destination as well. Cruise passengers wishing to visit Serbia can use extended stays in Neum to travel to this landlocked nation.
