Nearly two dozen passengers aboard the Carnival Splendor are back in the Southland Sunday after being robbed at gunpoint during their seven-day voyage in the Mexican Riviera.
A dream vacation turned into a nightmare for almost two dozen cruise ship passengers who were robbed at gunpoint by a band of thieves.
Question: would that be good enough for you? Is that a fair settlement, or will there be lawsuits? Well, of course there will be lawsuits, because that’s the way it is. I don’t know first-hand what the passengers have been through. Should they be compensated additionally? What would be fair?
