Seems like a few details were left out of Hager350's story http://www.cruisecritic.com/news/news.cfm?ID=4819Interesting, there always seemed to be something missing from the beginning.
"But because they were denied boarding for breaching the guest conduct policy, Royal Caribbean's Martinez says they will not receive a refund for the cruise, on which the couple say they spent almost $3,000."Wondering if travel insurance would pay.
Wondering if travel insurance would pay.There's not a policy in the world that is going to compensate someone for being denied boarding for violating policies.
...but things much clearer now. Typical 'dummy run', Captain worried they are going shopping for something in the islands, which they will smuggle back onboard the same way, therefore high risk.
Oh, OK. I defended the OP on the other thread, but things much clearer now. Typical 'dummy run', Captain worried they are going shopping for something in the islands, which they will smuggle back onboard the same way, therefore high risk.I thought that too, but was afraid to speak up. I suspect the OP figured he would throw it away if security balked.
They are getting nothing, with or without a lawyer, I think.
I'm confused, how did they breach the guest conduct policy. Even though they were sneaky and very suspicious about their tobacco, it was still something that is allowed to be brought on.I'm also wondering the same.
If my husband thinks I quit smoking so I get creative and hide a pack and Royal finds it-are we getting thrown off because I hid them???You don't think hiding "a pack" of cigarettes is somewhat different than hiding a baggie of (what may or may not be) tobacco and a pipe?
