A man filed a lawsuit against Royal Caribbean last week, following an injury he suffered while using the ship’s FlowRider surfing simulator.

The plaintiff, Raymond Bower, filed suit against the company in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Miami Division on February 9th. He alleges that the company’s negligence resulted in his suffering significant injuries, in an incident in which he used the company’s onboard surfing simulator called FlowRider. The suit alleges Royal Caribbean of failing to provide the plaintiff with sufficient supervision and assistance in using the ride.

This is at least the second time Royal Caribbean has been sued due to its FlowRider surfing simulator this year. A complaint was filed against the company on January 12th by a plaintiff who alleges that the company modified the attraction, rendering it more dangerous, but failed to warn passengers of the increased hazard.
