By now, I’m sure you’ve heard about the Carnival Triumph fiasco, which is being called the “cruise from hell” and the “poop cruise” in the press. The nightmare is finally over for the trapped passengers, and the first lawsuits have already been filed.
But according to Consumerist, passengers seeking to sue over the ordeal will likely be out of luck in the legal arena.
It looks like passengers will have to simply accept Carnival’s “gesture of goodwill”, which is a full refund for the cruise, a discount voucher for a future cruise, and $500 cash.
Carnival stands to lose nearly $100 million from this ordeal. If lawyers started coming after the company, it could spell disaster for CCL. For now, we’ll have to wait and see how things play out.
