There must also be a freezer for humans as well On my first cruise a guy died of a heart attack on the first night at sea. It sucked for him as well as his Family. The cruise went as planned, one of the crew members told me they had the guy in the freezer.
after hearing that I decided no hot dogs or Breakfast sausages for me for the rest of the cruise.

So there is an emergency room (infirmary), a brig, a morgue (I knew about that) and a bar and pool for the crew. I think there is a whole other society going on under our decks.

Anyone ever saw the "brig".

The closest I think that I have come to the brig was an inside stateroom on the Riviera deck of the Fantasy.

Rumor has it that there are brigs on these ships. Has anyone ever seen what a cruiseship brig looks like? are they like an inside cabins or jail cells?

Just curious. On my cruise security was seen packing up someone's cabin in the not so loving, not so tender way that they are known to do. I never did find out why but they can clear out a cabin in 5 minutes or less.
One of the ships my daughter was on, I think it may have been the Triumph, did an all stop at about 3AM for a man overboard. She was the dance captain at the time and had to account for all her charges by actually seeing them face to face. This meant getting her dancers out of bed. Seems someone threw over a Safety Ring and claimed he saw someone in the water. After everyone, guests as well, were accounted for, the fellow, who was big time drunk, admitted he threw it over for a lark. He was put off at the next port with the words, See you in court. So it does happen.

Hi all,i realy don't know anybody jailed on the ships i've been!Yes i did seen people leaving earlyer but for good reasons!As much i know wherever you go,you liable for your actions by the law of your country.CCL policy is no different,the only thing is not gonna put you in jail,you just go home before.
About medical emergencys,yes we did went back in ports,we did had speed boats comming from shore,we did got early somewere to get people to the hospital,unfortunately we had also heart attacks(not very often!).
About the life under your cabins...yes is a real society under,pools,crew-bars,internet-caffe,laudry-room,dinning-rooms,crew center,we do have a lot of activitys there...but is normal,we live on that place min 6 months,max 8 months and the smaller ship i've been "we" was 1000 people!(bigest...1200!)
Ok...see ya.

When I stayed in the lower decks, I was always wondering what that strange calamity was coming from underneath me. Is the alcohol free down there??

I've seen someone get "involuntarily disembarked" - the guy was hammered for the entire first half of the cruise, harassing other passengers and just being an overall pain in the butt. He even came up to me one day and started babbling about something, so I politely let the conversation continue for a minute or two, and then for some reason he decided to kiss me...and he is lucky I was a bit younger and completely shocked, because if it happened again he would have found himself overboard. Apparently they left him in the brig one night (so yes, it does exist) to give him a chance to sober up. He obviously didn't listen, because at the next port they kicked him off. And as far as I know, it's up to you to get home if that happens. I can't imagine it being easy (or cheap) to find a way home from a small island in the Caribbean.
