They will remain in our thoughts and prayers," Arison said.

 

In accordance with financial disclosure requirements, the company provides the following information:

 

The company has insurance coverage for damage to the vessel with a deductible of approximately $30 million as well as insurance for third party personal injury liability subject to an additional deductible of approximately $10 million for this incident.   The company self-insures for loss of use of the vessel.
