Wiegand also addressed the criminal charge in Puerto Rico against Chloe's grandfather, Salvatore "Sam" Anello, who placed his granddaughter on a wooden railing in front of what he says he believed to be a closed window, but was actually open.

Anello, the lawsuit says, did not know that this was not a wall of fixed glass.

Chloe's parents are seeking unspecified damages from Royal Caribbean and are demanding a jury trial.

"Royal Caribbean played a major role in the death of our child", Kimberely explained.

The family hopes the lawsuit will lead to safety changes, including additional signage, to prevent something like this from happening to another family. The girl slipped through, falling to her death. The representative declined to comment on the lawsuit's allegations.

"Our hearts go out to the family for their tragic loss", the spokesperson wrote.

And in November it was reported that there is video evidence supporting the family's claim that Mr Anello was unaware the window was open - a potential bombshell for both the case against her distraught grandad and the family's Royal Caribbean suit.

"Carnival and [Norwegian Cruise Line] and even newer Royal Caribbean cruise ships have windows that are wholly compliant with these window fall prevention codes", Winkleman said.

Royal Caribbean's Freedom of the Seas ship. Chloe reached out to bang on the glass, but fell out of her grandfather's arms and landed on the dock 150 feet below.

We know that the company plans to expand the A-series further, and more devices will be unveiled over the next few months. Some months later, Samsung re-launched the Galaxy Fold and this time the foldable phone was in flawless shape.


Last month, Anello told CBS that he wants Royal Caribbean to put signs on the windows that would warn passengers when they are open. He noted that he's colorblind, which might explain why he didn't notice the tinted glass was open.

"Galveston is on course to become a global destination for cruising, and we are thankful for partners like Royal Caribbean".

The lawsuit says Chloe was with her mother in a children's water park area on the pool's 11th deck, and that when the mother had to go attend to another matter, Anello came to supervise the child.

Authorities in Puerto Rico charged Anello with negligent homicide in October.

Wiegand said she doesn't support the charges against Chloe's grandfather, who is her stepfather.

"We all sit here broken", Mr Anello said Wednesday. "Our family is strong and we will stay strong together". What objective could possibly be served by prosecuting a misdemeanor offense? He told CBS News recently that he is colourblind, which might have made it hard for him to see the difference between a window and open air.

In other Royal Caribbean Cruises news, CEO Richard D. Fain sold 20,000 shares of the stock in a transaction dated Friday, October 11th. I saw her fall and I was just in disbelief. "Just fix it. Just fix the boat".

Anello - who said he "thought there was glass" to protect Chloe after he lifted her to a window to bang on the glass just as she did at hockey games - is due to return to court on December 17 to decide if he wants a trial by jury or judge, the Times of Northwest Indiana reported.

Wharves board of trustees Chairman Albert Shannon said the agreement is one of the most important and momentous deals ever struck in the city of Galveston.
