It’s Not Always Good to be First

There’s a new law in Australia’s state of New South Whales that says cruise ships must use low-sulfur fuel while berthed in Sydney. The first ship to get fined was Pacific Jewel (a $15,000 fine). But Carnival (P&O Australia’s parent) isn’t just going to pay the ticket. They say they were using the right fuel at the right time and that the EPA’s test was bad.

The complete story appeared in the May 23 edition of Cruise News Daily.
