Just FYI:

Yesterday I was at a press conference here on Cunard Queen Elizabeth and someone asked about the incident.

Micky Arison (CEO and top shareholder of Carnival Corp, owners of Cunard Lines), who is not only Jewish but a first generation American, son if an Israeli citizen said...

"Based on the behavior of the couple onboard the QM2, they would have been thrown off of any Carnival Corporation ship"

That was all he said, but I took it to mean that neither their monetary situation nor their guest profile made no difference, their behavior was especially egregious, despite the fact that they were responsing to what apparently were anti-semitic remarks.
