I find it strange the stories keep saying the family was suppose to be on a five night cruise but the Majesty doesn't do five night cruises. They also say they were kicked off the ship at 11PM. The Majesty is only suppose to be in Nassau until 6PM. I also wish they'd quit calling it a "Boat". (Sorry just my pet peeve there). Seems like there definitely is details missing in this story.
It does seem like some details are missing. I have never had a cold that caused vomiting and diarrhea. I guess it could happen to a baby though. The calling the ship a boat is a pet peeve of mine too. Our bar tender a few years ago called out a young couple for it. He pointed to a life boat and said "that is a boat, this is a ship". I think the future cruise credit is adequate. It isn't their fault they didn't have passports or travel insurance.
It probably was Majesty as they only have three ships doing the Bahamas. Majesty, Monarch and Soverign of the Seas are the only ships RCCL has currently hitting thier port. Reporting it as a 5 nighter is yet another discrepency in the story. It would have been either a 3 or 4 night sailing on any of these ships. Why bother with the actual facts of a story when you have something you can report with a sick baby, an evil corporation mistreating a family and lots of emotional appeal to their viewers, especially mothers. I'll bet they got very big ratings for that nights broadcast after running the ads that were the trailer in the video. Here I go being cynical again.
See Dave, we're already getting closer to the facts than the investigative reporter that did the story. They didn't have the ship or length of sailing right. I wonder what else in the story is fabricated to fit the well spun tale of woe?
I guess I missed something. I thought after Jan 1 you had to have passports. I have not really paid attention to it because we have had our for several years.
Our friends told us that his business partner and family were kicked off of a ship last fall. It was after the mom was complaining about the kids being in different Day Camps because of age. She wanted them together. After she threaten to become physical, they were removed from the ship. Sounds to me like it was all her fault....
