One lawsuit has been filed in U.S. Circuit Court against Norwegian Cruise Line. A 44-year old cook from the Philippines is suing NCL for $1 billion in punitive damages – according to news reports he says the boiler equipment was antiquated and dangerous – and $1 million in compensatory damages for pain and suffering.
In the meantime, the National Transportation Safety Board, which sent a 10-member team to Miami Sunday to investigate the accident, has no word yet on a cause and, indeed, it could be months if not a year before one is determined.
There has been no word from NCL regarding cancellation of any cruises beyond Norway's June 1 and June 8 sailings. We'll keep you posted.
