This week the Justice Department reached an agreement under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requiring Atlantis Events, Inc., to provide interpreters or other aids or services to individuals with disabilities who are deaf or hard of hearing and traveling on Atlantis cruises and vacations.

Atlantis sells vacations by buying and then reselling to the public cabins on ships and rooms at resorts. The Department’s investigation found that Atlantis denied effective communication to three individuals who are deaf, and who had planned to take an Atlantis vacation cruise.

The settlement agreement requires Atlantis to adopt ADA accessibility policies, train its employees on the ADA, appoint a corporate ADA compliance officer, and designate an ADA shipboard contact on all cruises to respond to ADA-related issues. Atlantis will pay $10,000 to the United States in civil penalties and $9,000 in damages to the individuals harmed by its denial of interpreters and other aids.

People interested in finding out more about the ADA or this agreement may call the toll-free ADA Information Line at 1-800-514-0301 or 1-800-514-0383 (TDD), or access the ADA website at https://www.ada.gov.
