Triumph's previous problems may add to Carnival legal woes, NY Times says

Carnival (CCL) may face waves of lawsuits from passengers who suffered on the company's Triumph cruise ship, according to The New York Times. The fact that Triumph had mechanical problems last month, before it began its last ill-fated cruise, could add to Carnival's legal woes, the newspaper indicated. The growth of the cruise industry, however, won't necessarily be slowed by the incident, the newspaper quoted Matthew Jacob, an analyst with ITG Investment Research, as saying.
