Penalty stiffened for smoking aboard Paradise

NEW YORK -- Carnival Cruise Lines stiffened the penalty for passengers caught smoking on the new, smoke-free Paradise.

Not only will such passengers be put ashore at the next port, the line will make no refund and will assess the passenger's on-board account $250 for liquidated damages to cover the cost of cleaning and replacement of soft goods, such as draperies, linens and bedding.

Carnival president Bob Dickinson, chatting with reporters on the Paradise, hinted the line will be redoubling its efforts to get more capacity in the Bermuda market.

He also said he expects no delay in delivery of any ships on order from Fincantieri, the Italian yard Disney blamed for the five-month delay of the Disney Wonder.
