How Security Handles Disruptive Passagers

Recommended Posts

 

Also, what would be the point of removing drinking privileges if you can just ask for them back?

 

Not sure but I had my drinking privileges taken away after a tequila heavy day in Cozumel in May and I asked nicely the next afternoon (not even knowing they were taken until trying to buy a drink) and they reinstated mine and my DHs. I am a little embarrassed but I also know I went straight to bed and didn't physically touch anyone. I know this because my very reserved British friend was with me and said we were just a little louder than normal and unsteady on our feet.

Yes you are very lucky you didn't get to spend the rest of your cruise in the brig. Ships Have Padded Cells for Problem Passengers. They're often a courteous and helpful bunch, but they also have the power to confine you to quarters, lock you up, and, in some circumstances, escort you off the ship to sit in a foreign jail

True or BS story? There's only one way to find out. OP, post your drunk video on Youtube and let's see the real evidence of your story.

Very glad to hear that the staff on your ship did their duty.

 

It's always way more fun to be in control of yourself. I have found over the years that 2 to 3 drinks in succession is my absolute limit. When my teeth start to feel rubbery, I stop.

 

If I never go over that, everything turns out just fine...and I can be in my happy place for a couple hours:halo:

 

Sounds like you know that now too. Happy cruising.

 

And if this is just a load of hockey, maybe some were meant to read it anyways.......I do have my suspicions too

Seen it. Inside cabin across from us had a guy locked in it rest of the cruise with 24/7 security. He was yelling to be let out. We would laugh passing by. You really have to do a lot to get there but pushing security could warrant it. I could be wasted beyond imagination and wouldn’t do that. I think it says a lot about ones personality to act like that when drunk.

 

Where in the world were the friends?This whole story seems pretty much made up. Just a bunch of nice 30-40 year old moms doing tons of tequila shots and hitting the casino. Yeah right.

Thanks for sharing your story. Very surprised one of your friends didn't stay with you to make sure you were safe.

 

That's what I was thinking, but they probably just thought she would pass out. OP is the dang Energizer Bunny. :D

 

Those that think eating would have made a significant difference are naive about alcohol.

 

OP, I don’t understand how you chose to be so irresponsible. I’m glad you’re okay, since it sounds like your friends were irresponsible, too, in leaving you alone. Thanks for sharing your story.

 

Food definitely helps. It doesn't allow all the alcohol to hit an empty stomach all at once.

You don't even have the guts to apologize yourself?

 

Wow, talking about being judgmental. You must be so perfect!:rolleyes: She apologized to the ones she came in contact with. She even apologized the the security lady when her friends pointed her out which she didn't have to. The only way for her to apologize to all of them would have been for security to round them all up so she could. Since her girlfriends weren't with her the entire time even they wouldn't be able to point them all out.

 

Oh dear,I smoked a big fat cigar on my balcony ,I was with my 30 or 40 year old friends at the time.

Our neighbour complained to security,they came to our cabin and give me a warning.

Next night I smoked a big fat cigar on my balcony,:rolleyes: go's on and on and on.........Thank you for letting me share this

 

Oh poor you! I also would have called security.

I totally agree she learned nothing and asked for her drinking privileges back. Denial. I agree I hope she finds the help she needs.

 

Oh, just get over your self. Just because she asked for her drinking privileges back doesn't mean that she has a problem. She said she didn't even use it that night. I would have also asked for mine back if that would ever happen to me. I would think an episode like that would definitely make most people not want to repeat it again. Also, with the package it isn't only for booze. Sodas, water, speciality coffees, etc are included.

 

The OP claim that she had her drinking privileges restored makes me doubt this whole thing ever actually happened.

 

It makes me wonder if this is one of the 35 accounts that Carbuilder claims to be posting under to stir the pot.

 

I don't know who carbuilder is, but I don't know why you would think such a post would be stirring the pot. There are many other ways to do that.

 

To the OP, thanks for sharing. Hopefully others will remember this when they start having to much.

In Texas an underage person can legally drink if he is with a parent. Drink must be served to the parent who can then give it to the teen. ( This was the law back when I was bartending.)

More like thanks for the laugh. Amazing how gullible some people are.

In Arkansas a parent in a restaurant giving alcohol to a child under 21 is subject to arrest.

Almost no 2 states have same Alcohol Laws. Some allow under 21 to drink for Religious reason's, Educational, or if Parent or Peace Officer is present. Other's have all different times/dates when anyone can/cannot serve or buy. When I was in Military long as you were in Uniform you could drink...

IDK. Fact can be stranger than fiction. About 5 years ago I did see a security guard 'on duty' outside a grand suite for several days at the start of the cruise on Adventure in the Med. Our cabin steward (we were just a few doors away) was appropriately discreet but inferred that there was a personal issue. No idea how this 'issue' was resolved though!

Thank you for having the courage to share your experience! I want you to know I sent a copy of this to a cruising friend that goes overboard on occasion. I have tried to explain the cruise line has the right to have you removed from the ship... he just shrugs it off saying they won't do anything! I hope your story will have an impact on him. Thank you again for sharing!

Hmmm, my first thought was that it sounded made up. Then, I see “she” has only posted 4 times, and joined CC shortly before this post? Hmmm.... if she’s real, glad she is ok :)

Seems to me there are several people in here are absolutely faultless and have never made a mistake. Bless their hearts. Perfection is tough to attain.

 

There is a big wide gap between faultless/perfect and the described behavior.

What impact? Getting your drinking privileges back and not getting booted off the ship for assaulting security? Your friend will feel vindicated, by this story, in his belief that they will not do anything, not deterred.

Well said. According to some of these people, you can't comment on the recklessness of drunk driving if you've even once not come to a full stop at an intersection.

 

Nevermind that the entire story is likely fan fiction.

A few friends of mine decided to take a girl’s trip on Empress of the Seas, a short 4 night cruise with an overnight in Havana. We are all professionals, with husbands and kids. All in our 30s and 40s...Not a rowdy bunch.

 

Professional friends won't let professional drunk friends be alone and left to their own devices for that long of a time period without checking up. Not one of the other three professional friends went looking for drunk professional friend? Not one of the three professional friends was notified about the savage in the dining room, the scantily clad woman in the hot tub or the irate passenger who escaped her cabin - TWICE!

This is quite the tale. Thank you for the "novel" submission.

I'm in the "don't believe it" group. This was embarkation day. Isn't this casino closed and what happened to muster? Also, how does a passenger serve other passengers shots.

 

I would think that laying hands on a security person is one of there zero tolerance rules. Off the ship you would go.

Yeah I think the story is made up but to what end. What is the point of making up some weird and embarrassing story about yourself. I don't see the point>

How would this stir the pot? It’s overall a story with a positive outcome after a bad situation.
What was the positive outcome?

 

Maybe a lucky outcome
