"In the wake of a multimillion dollar fine levied earlier this summer against Carnival Cruise Lines for repeated environmental violations, the town of Bar Harbor is looking to the cruise industry to pay for monitoring the town’s air quality.

Town Councilor Gary Friedmann said he contacted Carnival Cruise lines to ask them to pay for the program. He said roughly a third of the nearly 180 ship visits scheduled for Bar Harbor this year are by Carnival ships or other lines owned by the same parent company."
