Plus, I absolutely hate it when a big business tries to use political ties to get what they want so they can be allowed to disobey the laws for their own benefit while everyone else is required to obey the laws.

Shame on them for threatening to take their business elsewhere if they don't get what they want and shame on the politicians who are considering giving them what they want!

To me, they can either obey the laws or go somewhere else. Hopefully, they'll eventually run out of places to hide and have to obey the laws. Other cruise lines play by the rules, why not them?
