MIAMI—A Lee County woman is suing a cruise line over allegations that her arm was injured when an employee struck her with a heavy door.

Eugenia I. Martinez-Caballero filed suit in U.S. District Court in the Southern District of Florida on Jan. 13 against NCL Corporation, LTD., owner and operator of the Norwegian Epic cruise ship, citing negligence.
