During a spot check in March involving the aforementioned cruise ship, relevant authorities discovered that the vessel was burning bunker fuel containing 1.68 percent sulphur, therefore breaking the 1.5 percent limit.

AFP cited prosecutor Franck Lagier as saying in a court in Marseille that Carnival “wanted to save money at the expense of everyone’s lungs, in the context of major air pollution, caused partly by cruise ships.” 

However, lawyers for Carnival reportedly argued that the strictest laws on pollution do not apply to the Azura as these are reserved for passenger ships using a regular route, according to AFP.

World Maritime News contacted Carnival for details on the matter, however, the company is yet to reply.

The French court is scheduled to deliver its verdict on November 26.
