Carnival Cruises to Pay $20 Million Penalty for Dumping Plastics Into the Ocean

By

Carnival Cruise Line has been ordered to pay a $20 million fine after they were caught dumping plastic into the ocean — among other violations — which breached the terms of their probation, which were put in place after they previously were caught polluting.

In 2016, Princess Cruise Lines (which is owned by Carnival) was ordered to pay a $40 million penalty after confessing to illegally dumping oil-contaminated waste into the ocean, in addition to acts to cover up the polluting.
