(UNDATED) - A newly hired engineer on the Caribbean Princess, part of the 18-vessel fleet of cruise ships operated by Princess Cruise Lines Ltd. of Santa Clarita, Calif., watched an oily waste pour from the boat into ocean waters while off the coast of England.

Talk Media News reports, the employee reported it to British maritime authorities who forwarded the information to the U.S. Coast Guard where investigators found the same practice on four other Princess vessels.

The Department of Justice says the cruise operator was fined $40 million, with $1 million to be rewarded to the whistleblower employee.
