A class action lawsuit has been filed against Carnival Corporation surrounding the events that crippled the cruise ship Triumph in the Gulf of Mexico.
Filing on behalf of other tourists, passengers Matt Crusan and Melissa Crusan alleged in their lawsuit that "Carnival knew or should have known that the vessel Triumph was likely to experience mechanical and/or engine issues because of prior similar issues," the court filing said.
The lawsuit alleged that conditions on the ship "created a severe risk of injury, illness and/or disease."
The case was filed this week in U.S. District Court in the southern district of Florida.
Carnival spokesman Vance Gulliksen said: "We are unable to comment on pending litigation."
