Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings is suing Carnival Corporation and Carnival Cruise Line for trademark infringement. The lawsuit alleges that Norwegian Cruise Line is infringing upon the goodwill and reputation of Carnival Cruise Line by using the Norwegian Dawn ship design on its ships and marketing Norwegian Cruise Line’s ships as in the same class and style as the Carnival ships. Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings is seeking an injunction to stop the use of the orange and blue Norwegian Dawn design, which was created and registered by Norwegian Cruise Line.

As of September 17, 2013, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (NCLH) filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against a former employee, alleging she stole trade secrets and misappropriated company information. The complaint asks the court for preliminary and permanent injunctions, declaratory relief, and monetary damages against the former employee.

Norwegian Cruise Lines Holdings (NCLH), the parent company of Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL), filed a preliminary injunction on January 11th in Florida Circuit Court, seeking to prevent the American cruise line from moving forward with plans to open a third Orlando cruise terminal. The injunction is a response to a  lawsuit filed by NCLH on December 7th in the District Court of the State of Florida, naming as defendants NCL, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings, Inc. and The Port of Orlando..

Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings has requested a preliminary injunction in Florida, arguing that the state’s statute banning companies from demanding proof of vaccination status is unconstitutional.

The cruise company filed a petition in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida, requesting that the court give NCLH a preliminary injunction allowing its ships to continue sailing safely while adhering to the cruise line’s rigorous health and safety standards.


What’s Hot Right Now


Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings said in a statement that it has done its bit to keep passengers safe but that it has been unable to achieve an agreement with the state of Florida to resume voyages.

The statement stated, “With our thorough planning and preparation, we are ready to start sailing from Florida ports on August 15, 2021.” “Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, we have been unable to achieve an agreement with the State of Florida that would enable us to demand paperwork verifying passengers’ vaccination status prior to boarding.” Despite the continuing worldwide epidemic and the rapid spread of the Delta strain, Florida refuses to require vaccination paperwork, which we think would allow us to start sailing in the safest possible manner. We think Florida’s ban violates federal law, public health, and science, and that it is not in the best interests of our passengers, crew, and the communities we visit, therefore we have regretfully sought relief from the courts. Today, we ask the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida to declare Florida’s prohibition unconstitutional and to grant us a preliminary injunction allowing our Company to resume sailing while adhering to strict health and safety protocols in order to limit the spread of COVID-19 to the greatest extent possible.

“We are confident in the merits of our arguments, which speak for themselves, and we will make no more comments outside of court. Our efforts today show our determination to continue sailing in line with our scientifically sound SailSAFE health and safety standards, which include obligatory vaccines as a cornerstone. Except for Florida, our policy of 100% immunization for passengers and crew is constant and in place without problem in every port we sail from across the globe. Florida, the world’s cruise capital, has been our home since our inception in 1966, and we take pleasure in maintaining our positive relationships with and contributions to our local community. We are not looking forward to pursuing this case, which was our final option. Nothing is more important than the health and safety of our guests, crew, and the communities we visit; we are dedicated to them.”

In addition to the NCLH’s preliminary injunction, the CDC has challenged a federal judge’s June 18 decision that issued a preliminary injunction against the agency, prohibiting it from implementing the conditions of its Conditional Sailing Order (CSO) on cruise operations in Florida.

The cruise line filed for an injunction in Florida last week, in an attempt to halt the cruise line from pursing a $75-million lawsuit against the Norwegian Cruise Line. The suit, filed by Norwegian in November, alleges that NCL violated Norwegian’s trademark by using its Norwegian Sky logo on the Norwegian Star, an older ship that is currently owned by NCL, but is operated by a different company..
