I hope they toss this idiot in the brig for 20 years and bankrupt as well. Being drunk is not a excuse for what I consider to be a terrorist type act. They need to revoke his licenses. In todays day and age, there is no place for people like him.

The great thing about cruising is most of us have some level of respect and other for the passengers on board. He single handed-ly destroyed that for all of us. No doubt our once happy vacation will be come more riddled with distrust for the well behaved guest thanks to this moron.

Seriously? As if there isn't enough going on in the travel industry? As everyone keeps saying in the boards, something needs to be done about the drunkards on ships. Cruise employees DO NOT have time to be babysitters, they are strained enough as it is! It's pathetic you can't be adult enough to watch your consumption of alcohol...you were adult enough to pull the money out of your pocket to pay for the cruise and now you are going to be irresponsible and ruin everyone else's good time AND hard earned money for your stupidity? Hopefully I will be lucky enough to not have anything this ignorant happen when it's time for my cruise, geesh.
