The Lake County News-Sun helps a cruise ship passenger get reimbursed for damages caused to her CPAP machine when new carpeting was installed in her room.

I have to use a CPAP machine nightly in order to maintain my health. Consequently, I am extremely careful when it comes to my machine and I always carry it with me. My CPAP machine worked properly when I boarded a Carnival cruise ship in June. I used it for two days and on the third day work was done in our cabin without my knowledge. New carpeting was installed and all our belongings, including my CPAP machine, were put in the hallway. During the maintenance, my CPAP machine was damaged and that night it did not work.
