Carnival lawsuitA federal lawsuit has been filed seeking damages for 17 people who were passengers last month on the crippled Carnival Triumph cruise ship.

The plaintiffs in the suit filed Thursday are all Texas residents who claim they were physically harmed and fearful for their lives. The ship cruises out of the Port of Galveston.

The suit is at least the fourth to be filed against Miami-based Carnival Cruise Lines. A prior one is seeking class-action status for more than 3,000 passengers aboard when an engine fire cut off all power and left them at sea for five days. Passengers say they endured food shortages, raw sewage running in corridors and tent cities for sleeping on deck.

The latest suit argues that Carnival overreaches in protecting itself against liability.

In many respects the situation on this cruise ship was similar to "snakes on a plane." No escape. The airlines offer all manner of compensation to passengers depending on the severity of he situation. The IATA indemnity for international air travel would seem to be a model for cruise line reform, and is more favorable to passengers than what the cruise lines currently offer. Time for a major change in cruise line behavour.

I would never take a cruise and don't understand why anybody would. If everyone boycotts the cruise companies, they will go out of business.
