Caribbean Cruise Line Sued For Spam Calls To Cell Phones

The lawsuit alleges that Caribbean Cruise Line made unsolicited robo-dial calls to consumers on their cell phones, in violation of Telephone Consumer Protection Act, (TCPA).  According to the plaintiffs, the robo-calls were made under the guise of conducting a political survey. However, in reality, the survey was a ruse to gain the opportunity to sell cruises to consumers.  Caribbean Cruise Line submitted a motion to dismiss, containing 3 arguments, each of which the judge rejected.

The TCPA prohibits calls to cell phones placed with an auto-dialer without the consumer’s prior express consent.  Penalties for certain TCPA violations begin at $500 per call and can be tripled to $1500 per call.
