Carnival Cruise Ships Might Be Blocked from Docking at U.S. Ports

One of the largest cruise lines in the world may temporarily be unable to operate in the US if a federal judge follows through on her threat.

U.S. District Judge Patricia Seitz announced she was considering stopping Carnival Corporation from docking its cruise ships in United States' ports after the company "possibly violated its probation agreement with the U.S." The final decision is expected in June.

Carnival, as part of a US$40 million settlement for dumping oil in the ocean from company's Princess ships, has been on probation for the past 2 years. Court documents allege Carnival has since "falsified records, dumped plastic garbage in the ocean and attempted to quietly change the terms of the settlement with the U.S. Coast Guard."
