    And that's uninjured and still sounds low

    I THINK I read where they've already sent out the checks, and if people cash them it means they accept the offer.....not sure if that's true though

    I'd set aside $500k as a damage fund and let the passengers and their lawyers have it out among themselves.

    Italian consumer group ADOC estimated that about 3,000 passengers would get about 14,000 euros each if they accept the offer, including expenses, according to an e-mailed statement. ADOC forecast 85 percent of passengers will accept the offer. That would bring the total cost to about 42 million euros. Carnival has liability cover of as much as $3 billion with the Standard Club, a mutual insurance association owned by ship owners, and the Steamship Mutual Underwriting Association Ltd., according to spokesmen for the two firms.

    $14K sounds good to me. I'd take it. You can sue for more but when the company goes bankrupt you are fucked.
