U.S. Judge Denies NCL Class Action Suit

A US judge denied the plaintiff's motion for class certification in the lawsuit stemming from weather conditions experienced on the April 10, 2005 voyage of Norwegian Dawn. The ship encountered heavy weather on its return to New York, including an unpredictable large wave. No one suffered serious injuries. The court victory followed the conclusions of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and the Bahamas Maritime Authority (BMA), which both found no wrongdoing by Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) or Norwegian Dawn's captain. In its report released in November 2005, the NTSB concluded that although the rough weather made the voyage unpleasant, "the safety and integrity of the ship was in no way compromised by this incident."
