Carnival Cruise line executives are not working fast enough to address ocean pollution issues, a federal judge said Wednesday.
Earlier this year, Carnival — the world's largest cruise line — admitted violating probation from a 2016 criminal pollution case as its ships continued to cause environmental harm around the world. It was hit with a $20 million penalty, on top of a $40 million fine imposed in the original case.
A judge has since enlisted the help of a court-appointed monitor to keep a watchful eye on the company’s efforts.
Carnival operates more than 100 ships across nine cruise brands and sails to more than 700 destinations.
