http://nycourts.law.com/CourtDocumentViewer.asp?view=Document&docID=46478 Judge Leisure PLAINTIFFS, NEW York residents, brought an action under the court’s diversity jurisdiction seeking damages for unlawful imprisonment and breach of contract. Plaintiffs’ claims arose from their alleged mistreatment at the hands of defendant Norwegian Cruise Lines Ltd. (NCL), as Florida corporation, while on board NCL’s cruise ship, the Norwegian Star. NCL moved to dismiss the action based on a forum selection clause contained in the passenger ticket contract issued to the plaintiffs for their cruise that requires claims against NCL to be brought in Dade County, Florida. The court found the forum selection clause valid and enforceable and ordered transfer rather than dismissal. The court determined that plaintiffs had ample opportunity and incentive to review the provisions of the contract and added that any failure to do so on their part does not relieve them of the limitations within the contract.
