Costa Concordia Sinking
It’s been more than a year since the Costa Concordia ran aground off the Italian coast, but Tuesday the sole defendant in the case, Captain Franceso Schettino, was scheduled to go to trial in Italy.
Miami-based Carnival Cruise Lines is now facing a revised lawsuit which adds more plaintiffs and claims that seek millions of dollars in damages in last month’s Costa Concordia cruise ship disaster.
Six passengers from the doomed Costa Concordia ship have filed a lawsuit against Costa Cruise Lines and Carnival Cruise Lines seeking $460 million in damages.
Just days after the Costa Concordia disaster, Costa’s parent company, Doral-based Carnival Cruise Lines announced Thursday it would be suspending its social networking activity through Twitter and Facebook.
