Carnival Corp. Reaches Deal with Federal Prosecutors

Federal prosecutors announced today that they have reached a deal with Carnival in the case against the company for violating probation. Details of the deal were not released.

The news comes three weeks after Miami-based Carnival Corp. was charged with six probation violations for a 2016 conviction for environmental crimes.

The violations included dumping plastic into Bahamian waters and improperly preparing ships ahead of visits from the court-appointed monitor.

The company has been on probation since April 2017 as part of a $40 million settlement for dumping oily waste into the ocean from its Princess Cruises ships for eight years and covering it up. This was Carnival Corp.’s third conviction for the same crime since 1998.

Miami federal judge Patricia Seitz will review the deal in court on June 3rd, 2019. Her options are to either accept the deal, or reject it and set a probation revocation hearing at a later date.
