Reuters is reporting that the Carnival "poop cruise" passengers are seeking $5,000 a month for life. Ridiculous, many people will say. I don’t disagree.
I went on record a year ago saying that Triumph passengers should not bother suing because they are not going to get anything – read Carnival Triumph Cruise From Hell: Here Come the Lawsuits!
Carnival’s lawyers responded by telling Reuters that "this is an opportunistic lawsuit brought by plaintiff’s counsel and plaintiffs who seek to make a money grab."
That’s like the pot calling the kettle black. Carnival CEO Micky Arison is worth $7 billion and just sold $395 million of stock. But Carnival still felt compelled last year to raid the crew member’s tips and suspend their retirement benefits. Talk about a money grab.
I say what do the hard-working Carnival crew members get for cleaning up the filthy ship?
