That is my old Komondor, he used to love to sleep in the shower unless we locked the door he would get in.

Honey, don't trip over the rug, there's something huge under it. 😀  That's one cool looking dog.

How big is the burn wound if the dr says it could take weeks to months to heal? I'm surprised he can't put a better time line on it. It's not like you were massively burned. They did tell you to keep your arms tucked in, right? Hope it heals quick.

 

Any pictures you want to post?

Be careful what you post, I would not make it public. This should be between you, a reputable lawyer and RCL. What answers do you expect from here?

Maybe I am alone in this but... not every accident results with compensation. I knew to wear long pants and long sleeves on the Abyss when Harmony came to the US.

 

I was burned pretty bad on a cruise several years ago. It was an accident, the coffee carafe had a mini explosion all over me. The staff took me to see the doctor and wouldn't let me off the ship (it was the last morning of the cruise) until they got a specialist there to check my eyes since there were burns near my eyes. 

Just a side note, the only people that ever knew about it were the people at the table with me, including my DH, DS, DBiL and my stepson... I have never told anyone on CC about it. Some on here might be shocked by this... 


All I wanted was to be OK and eventually I was. I do have a few scars from it but it was an accident... Be thankful it wasn't your life. 

Just my 2cents, sorry  

You are not alone in your feelings. A freak incident at my grandson’s daycare several years ago left me with a broken wrist, requiring surgery, pins, a couple months in a cast, and a few months of physical therapy to regain use of my hand and wrist. It was highly inconvenient as it happened right after Thanksgiving, thus affecting the holidays, and I could not drive for a good portion of that time. 

 

The daycare’s Corporate office reimbursed all of my out of pocket medical expenses, and probably would have covered lost wages, but I had enough sick time banked up for any time I needed off, and my employer was quite flexible with my schedule while I was not able to drive myself.  I did not ask for anything more. 

 

Other than that, I was grateful my injury wasn’t worse or permanent, and very grateful I was not carrying my grandson at the time of the incident.

The same happen to me last year on Harmony. I held my arms as instructed.

However,  my right arm came lose and rub alongside the slide..I too made a skin deposit. It burned like He## & was very painful! Had to have assistance from DH for about 2 weeks to dress the area. I have a  daily reminder of my time on Abyss.  I was surprised that we didn't have to sign  a waiver as you have to with other shipboard activities. That's the risk we take when being adventurous! ;-). I 'm taking a long sleeved top on Symphony this year. Good Luck.

Many of you read my post about how I was burned pretty severe on the abyss on the symphony of the seas about 1 1/2 week ago. After I returned home I was still in pain and running a fever so I ended up being treated by my personal md who told me It will take weeks if not months for my burn wound to heal completely and I will definitely have a large scar on my arm.... i know many of you may say this sounds crazy and I slid down the abyss slide at my own risk but honestly I feel like there is something royal Caribbean should do regarding this. Because they admitted to me when I filed my accident report that they are aware that many people have gotten hurt on the abyss.... but why have they not taken any precautions to prevent this if they are aware? I'm not asking for a free cruise or anything but this incident ruined my cruise and I will have a scar on my arm to forever remind me of what happened it seems something can  be done to compensate for what happened? Who do I call or contact that will effectively take my matter serious and at least look into it to see if they can do something or do you think contacting royal would be a waste of my time?

 

Write a letter to the C.E.O. of RC.   Include with your complaint letter, photos of your injury, Dr. report, all medical bills. Explain you have been mentally traumatized, and physically scared for life.  You may get reimbursed by C C for the bills.

Maybe you just might get a full or partial refund of your cruise,  or maybe an offer of a free future cruise..  And if you do not get a satisfactory response or remedy, contact your lawyer.

Good luck.

If you mention lawyer at all the letter will be sent to legal and it'll wait there until a lawyer contacts them about it. If your letter is too long, hard to read, too hostile, or asks for way too much it probably won't get a response. Though conversely if you ask for nothing you're likely to get a thanks for contacting us letter. 

 

Considering this doesn't sound like a large dollar injury I personally would try to handle it myself considering it deals with maritime law and stipulations in the cruise contract that would complicate a suit.

I think the biggest issue is that it seems to be a known issue and has continued to be an issue.  Maybe they need to have water running out of small tubes all the way down to keep it slick?

It is a dry slide that you ride on a mat /bag that your feet go in.

Just our of curiosity, why would you start with the CEO? RC is almost a Fortune 500 company, not a Ma and Pa’s diner. It’s very inappropriate to take things to that level when no other attempt of communication has been made.

 

Jeff Bezos recently called out another lunatic for attempting to return an Amazon pacakage to him during the Q&A at an annual sharholders meeting. At least in the customers defense, she had tried to resolve the issue with Amazon first.

If so it should have sleeves for your arm to prevent the burn
