Carnival's Shit Ships

Princess Cruise Lines has made history by receiving the largest-ever criminal penalty involving deliberate vessel pollution. The line has agreed to plead guilty to seven felony charges stemming from its deliberate pollution of the seas and intentional acts to cover it up.
Tha amount of detail that is contained in the story makes me wonder if they got off cheap.

When I was in da Nav', it was impressed on us that illegally discharging contaminated waste would result in a $25,000 fine being levied personally against both the chief engineer and whomsoever was actually responsible. Supposedly there was one lieutenant commander who was paying off such a fine at $250 per month.
