Carnival is facing a class action lawsuit over the disaster aboard the Triumph.
The lawsuit states that the company knew or should have known that the ship could experience mechanical and/or engine issues...since it had in the past.
It also says conditions on the vessel created a risk of injury or illness.
The Triumph lost primary power earlier this month after an engine fire, causing toilets to overflow into public spaces.
Carnival offered passengers 500 dollars, a free flight home, a full refund, and a credit for another cruise.
