I contacted Carnival U.K. this afternoon to ask if there was a response to yesterday’s events in Marseilles. I received the following statement from a Carnival U.K. spokesperson:

“The Carnival group carries nearly 11.5 million guests on its vessels each year and takes its legal and moral obligations towards the protection of the environment very seriously indeed. We were disappointed to be prosecuted for this offence, as we believe we and our Captain were acting in accordance with applicable French law based on guidance the cruise industry received from the French Environment Ministry. As such, we are confident that the court will fully exonerate us.”
