Carnival Cruises: "Where is your commitment to our world?" Miami Judge Seitz ask CEO Arnol
Again Carnival admitted multiple times violating probation from a 2016 criminal pollution case as its ships continued to cause environmental harm around the world since then. Similar promises were made years ago by Carnival that things would change but it appears little did, Senior U.S. District Judge Patricia Seitz said.
The company also admitted falsifying compliance documents and other administrative violations.
Authorities say its ships have committed environmental crimes such as dumping “gray water” in prohibited places such Alaska’s Glacier Bay National Park and knowingly allowing plastic to be discharged along with food waste in the Bahamas, which poses a severe threat to marine life.
Will they ever change?
