(CNN) - A federal judge has threatened to block Carnival Cruise Ships from U.S. ports.

It's a punishment being considered for the company possibly violating the terms of its probation.

Carnival has been on probation as part of a 2017 settlement.

That's when the company agreed to pay $40 million dollars for discarding oil illegally in the ocean from its Princess Cruises ships, and not telling the truth about it to U.S. authorities.

This week U.S. District Judge Patricia Seitz said she'll decide at a June hearing what action, if any, to take against the cruise line.
