Angry Tourists Sue Cruise Line

Sea-faring passengers' dreams of deep-sea fishing, basking in the tropical sun and engaging in delightful games of nine-hole miniature golf were immediately quashed when cruise directors on a Royal Caribbean cruise informed arriving passengers that instead of sailing to sunny Bermuda, they were going to chilly Halifax, Nova Scotia.

When cruise directors decided to change course due to hurricane conditions, passengers didn't take the news lightly. On June 15 the New Jersey Attorney General's Office and the Division of Consumer Affairs filed suit on behalf of the tourists against Royal Caribbean, alleging the company violated the state's Consumer Fraud Act by changing the cruise itinerary without providing passengers with comparable itinerary and failing to issue refunds.
