The website for Geneva-based MSC Cruises says the company has "great respect for the world's oceans."

But videos have surfaced online showing an MSC employee dumping black garbage bags overboard on the MSC Magnifica, allegedly off the coast of Brazil.
Jim Walker, a Miami maritime lawyer who has chronicled the dumping on his site, Cruise Law News, uploaded the videos. He said several former MSC employees sent him the videos, plus additional photos, showing the improper disposals after a Brazilian news outlet reported a similar incident last December.
"Someone's got to be ordering them to do that," Walker said. "It must be going on in a larger scale."
