Princess Cruise Lines Ltd.
and its parent company Carnival Cruise Lines & plc
will pay a $20 million
criminal penalty for violating its probation resulting from a 2017 criminal proceeding
in which the companies paid a $40 million penalty. The companies were subject to ongoing compliance monitoring as a result of the earlier proceeding, and that monitoring detected numerous ongoing violations. Defendants admitted to failing to implement an effective compliance program, seeking to evade their compliance obligations, falsifying records, and illegally discharging waste. DOJ
