Couldn't the Fed file civil suit for the funds and expense? Arguing negligence on the part of Carnival; or flatly tell Carnival they need to have their own towing and tug services in the future?
Thought I should edit to label the reasons why: if Carnival has to pay for services to cover for their incompetence in ship maintenance, they will take ship maintenance more seriously. End rseult is a safer cruise line and better services without relying on government to pick up the tab for their negligent business practices.
Pocketbook penalization is probably the only thing that will make them change their business practices.
