After the first three, small, paragraphs you know the claim is bull and for Carnival to comment on current litigation basically proves it. For Carnival to comment on current litigation they risk further litigation and monetary damages if the charges are true. They wouldn't risk this if they had any doubt the allegations were false.
Yesterday I received an email, in my Cruisemates email, from someone pimping their "tell all, insider secrets" cruise book. There was an excerpt from it and after reading part of the excerpt I just shook my head and hit the delete key. It was embellishment and bad writing. The sad thing is that people will probably buy this. Literally and figuratively.
Sensationalism sells and the truth is boring. Sad fact of the times.
