A Texas woman was the first passenger to file suit, hours after the Carnival Triumph cruise that left about 3,200 passengers adrift was towed into Mobile, Alabama.
Cassie Terry sought unspecified damages against Carnival Corp. in Miami federal court on Friday claiming she was "injured as a result of the unseaworthy, unsafe, unsanitary, and generally despicable conditions."
Terry also claimed a "breach of maritime contract, negligence, negligent misrepresentation, and fraud."
The cruise line has yet to issue a response. "We haven't yet seen the suit and are not in a position to comment," said Jennifer De La Cruz, a spokesperson for Carnival Cruise Lines.
The cruiser was hobbled after an engine fire broke out on the ship, leaving the passengers without power or working bathrooms for five days.
