About 100 passengers from the ill-fated cruise ship Triumph have filed a class action suit against the cruise operator. The suit alleges that Carnival was negligent for allowing the Triumph to embark on the cruise, and states:
"Carnival knew or should have known that the vessel Triumph was likely to experience mechanical and/or engine issues because of prior similar issues."
A spokesman for Carnival tells OutFront they "are unable to comment on pending litigation."
