Passengers on the coronavirus-hit Ruby Princess cruise ship are launching legal action in a bid for compensation after the cruise resulted in 21 deaths. 

Shine Lawyers has filed a negligence class action against Carnival and Princess Cruise Lines, accusing them of mishandling an outbreak on board the ship which docked in Sydney in early March. 

All 2700 passengers and their relatives are eligible to join.

The cruise was linked to northwest Tasmania's coronavirus outbreak and around a dozen deaths in this state.
