Class-action suit filed against Carnival

A class action lawsuit has been filed against Carnival Corp. surrounding the events that crippled the cruise ship Triumph in the Gulf of Mexico.

Filing on behalf of other tourists, passengers Matt Crusan and Melissa Crusan alleged in their lawsuit that "Carnival knew or should have known that the vessel Triumph was likely to experience mechanical and/or engine issues because of prior similar issues," the court filing said.

The suit, filed Monday, follows a lawsuit that an individual passenger filed against the company last week.

    If they want to stay in business they better pay. I've had good experiences on Carnival but this time they blew it. I will never take a cruise again.

    How could the Minister Louis Farrakhan have missed this. He could have saved these people all this heartache.

    Maritime law is often very different than standard civil litigation! I doubt a bad outcome for Carnival!
