Carnival Corp will pay a $20 million settlement for dumping in the ocean.
The fine comes after Princess Cruises, a Carnival subsidiary, admitted to violating the terms of a 2017 settlement for improper waste disposal.
The details of the dumping were made public in a court filing release Monday.
Carnival released food waste and plastic into the ocean. It failed to accurately record waste disposals. Carnival created false training records.
The company also secretly examined ships to fix environmental-compliance issues before inspections without reporting its findings to the inspectors.
Monday’s settlement requires Carnival to devote more resources to comply with the 2017 settlement and improve waste management.
