CRUISE LINE DISPUTES
Each year, thousands of travelers choose to vacation on cruise lines. Most passengers have a
positive experience. However, on occasion, unforeseen issues may arise. In order to resolve any problems quickly and efficiently, binding arbitration is used to resolve claims that are associated with the cruise or that arise out of the Passage/Ticket Contract. National Arbitration and Mediation, Inc. (NAM) is the official arbitration administrator for both Carnival Cruise Lines, Princess Cruise Lines and Norwegian Cruise Lines.
NAM affords disputing parties cost-efficient access to some of the most highly qualified and
respected Hearing Officers throughout the country. Claims are reviewed and decided by
independent, experienced and neutral arbitrators. NAM's Comprehensive Dispute Resolution
Rules and Procedures provide a sensible and expedient process so that issues will be resolved
in a timely fashion.
