You seem defensive, in what way do you think my post 'slammed' Paul? I wrote about this here because the ad for 'chit chat' says to use it to write about what's on your mind.
I wrote about this post because I just returned from a cruise (#37) and have seen this type of behavior escalate when not immediately addressed. When you agree to be a passenger of a cruise ship, you agreee to abide by the authority of the Captain.
I still believe the Ship's Captain always operates in the best interest of the crew and passengers, and he was within his right to put this passenger off of the ship.
By the way, the article said the Captain was in touch with headquarters in Miami, so obviously, it was a joint decision by the company and the Captain.
