The United States government slapped a $40 million fine against Miami, Florida-based Carnival Corp.’s Princess Cruises for polluting the water.
According to the U.S. government, the Princess Cruises used a “magic pipe” to dump dirty water into the ocean off the coast of England in 2013. Investigators claim this instance of discharge is one among several wherein the ship dumped dirty water into the Atlantic, including off the shores of U.S. ports from Texas to South Florida and along the Eastern Seaboard in 2012 and 2013.
