The popular cruise lined was slapped with a $20 million fine when a subsidiary, Princess Cruise Lines “admitted to violating the terms of its probation from a 2017 conviction for improper waste disposal,” according to a Business Insider article.

From Business Insider:

“A court filing submitted on Monday said Carnival released food waste and plastic into the ocean, failed to accurately record waste disposals, created false training records, and secretly examined ships to fix environmental-compliance issues before third-party inspections without reporting its findings to the inspectors.”

Part of the settlement also included provisions requiring Carnival Cruise Lines to “to devote more resources to comply with its probation and improve waste management.”
