First lawsuit filed for storm-tossed Anthem of the Seas trip

That didn't take long. Less than a month after Hurricane winds forced the Anthem of the Seas to turn around and head back to New Jersey, a passenger has filed suit against Royal Caribbean. He claims that during the storm, he was tossed about the deck and then unable to get medical attention because the facilities were closed during the storm.

While passengers sue the cruise companies all the time, I don't see this one going far. Ultimately he is healthy and the ship's crew followed storm-related procedures. Was there really negligence? Royal Caribbean has also refunded and credited passengers who experienced the storm.
