Carnival refuses to pay up for Triumph rescue

MIAMI — The Carnival Cruise line will not reimburse the federal government for costs associated with the rescue of the Carnival Triumph earlier this year.

The ship's more than 4,000 passengers and crew were brought to safety by the Coast Guard. That cost the government $780,000. 

"Carnival needs to stay out of the news if it's ever going to regain the trust of the traveling public," said ABC Travel and Lifestyle Editor Genevieve Shaw Brown.

Last week, one of Carnival's cruise ships failed a health inspection. Inspectors found insects in food areas.

In March, mechanical problems on three other cruise ships forced the company to cancel or shorten cruises.
