Texas Woman First to File Lawsuit Against Carnival Cruise Lines [VIDEO]

The Carnival Cruise ship named “Triumph” may want to change that particular name to the “S.S. Minnow”, in light of the recent nightmare.

To hear most of the passengers tell it, the sight seeing adventure ended up with the Skipper in command of a much larger vessel, however, unlike the television series, the passengers and crew were only stranded on the water after what was supposed to be a “four day tour”.

The last passenger disembarked the ship at around 2 a.m. last Friday morning, and on that same day, Texas resident Cassie Terry wasted no time in filing a lawsuit, alleging that Carnival caused her harm by fearing for her life, in addition to suffering illness due to the presence of spoiled food and raw sewage.

More legal documents are expected to fly in the very near future, but may take some time, as all legal action against Carnival must be filed in Miami, Florida.  Expert counsel on maritime law say ground rules for winning such a case puts onus on the plaintiff when it comes to actual injury or illness.

Carnival has offered to refund the “Gilligan’s Island” cruise, including all purchases aboard ship, pay for a future cruise, as well as giving each passenger compensation in the amount of $500.
