The National Transportation Safety Board ("NTBS") concluded that the deadly boiler explosion was caused by NCL's "improper operation, maintenance and inspection" of the old cruise ship's steam chamber.The old boiler had "extensive fatigue cracking" and deteriorated materials that weakened the metal and caused it to rupture under pressure.Veitch then sued Sheehan and NCL alleging defamation, as well as breach of contract, claiming that his former cruise line and its new CEO allegedly cheated him out of revenue sharing.The overblown 187-page lawsuit which you can review here is, in my opinion, a rather fascinating insight into the hurt-feelings and out-of-control personalities of two multi-millionaire former NCL cruise executives. Sheehan and NCL asked the court to strike what they characterized as "immaterial, impertinent and scandalous" allegations.Veitch was the NCL CEO in 2003 when a decrepit, poorly maintained steam boiler on NCL's 40 year-old exploded at the port of Miami.The explosion killed eight crew members and seriously burned another nineteen NCL crew members.The Miami Herald reported at the time, quoting the lawsuit allegations, that Sheehan sent a “vindictive, false and defamatory” email to Travel Weekly which eventually published.A few days later, Travel Weekly retracted the complimentary article about Veitch.

The NTSB reported that NCL was aware of the dangerous condition but failed to take action to fix the problem.
CEO Veitch tried to deflect blame but NCL was forced to plead guilty to a criminal charge of gross negligence regarding the explosion. When the families of the eight dead crew members who were scalded to death filed suit in Miami to obtain compensation for the loss of their fathers and husbands, Veitch's lawyers argued that the crew members were not entitled to file suit before a judge and jury in Miami.
