Infographic: A Closer Look at Cruise Ship Accidents

With a surge in the global cruise shipping fleet, the number of major cruise ship accidents has also increased.

From a total of 55 vessels which sank from 1979 to 2013, fifteen were reported to have sunk in the three-year period from 2010 until 2013.

Furthermore, 448 major cruise ship accidents have been reported since 2005, while 66 out of 131 passenger ships ran aground in the period from 2005 to 2013.
