HAL and Costa May Settle
Two more cruise lines in the Carnival Kingdom have indicated that they, also, are willing to commit to increasing accessibility for disabled passengers. Holland America and Costa, reacting to lawsuits filed by Access Now, a Miami Beach-based organization promoting the rights of the disabled, have said, according to statements filed in court, that a settlement is quite possible.

You may recall that Carnival Cruise Lines, back in April, was the first to settle this lawsuit -- which is not limited to Carnival Corp. brands, by the way -- by agreeing to undergo ship renovations that will provide more disabled-friendly cabins, among other things. Carnival has six years to accomplish its pledges.

It is expected that Costa and Holland America will come to a similar arrangement.
