Excerpt from article

Richmond, Va., newlyweds Matthew and Lauren Urey were on a day trip to White Island from the Royal Caribbean cruise ship Ovation when the volcano went off, the New Zealand Herald reported.

Yeah, what is your point?

Royal Caribbean cruise ship Ovation might be liable for

Punitive damages
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77158128

I would assume that anybody taking a cruise to visit an active volcano would have been informed of the risks and signed waivers.

Any geologist I know would have accepted the risk and taken the tour.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77999704

I think the government of New Zealand will take responsibility this, for allowing access, and the official information about level of volcanic activity was very wrong.

GeoNet, which monitors geological hazards in New Zealand, placed the volcano alert level at a three out of a five-point scale during the eruption; it remained at that level Tuesday. A week before the incident and leading up to the eruption, the alert level was at a two.
