Default Man and son's kicked off the Conquest

Have you seen the news of a man and his son's being kicked off the Conquest. It seems a crew member became sick and had to be evacuated off the ship and this caused them to miss a Jamaica stop. Carnival only gave passengers $25.00 refund for Jamaica. A man became angry and had a petition signed by passengers and went to the captain. He and his son's were put off the ship in Gand Cayman. There must be more to this than just a petition.

We've only heard one side of the story, the passenger that was kicked off. I suspect there is more to this story as to how and why this man was thrown off the ship; like being being verbally abusive to the crew,

go back to the posts about 2-4 weeks ago for the scoop...the story has grown for sure and it sounds like the individuals that were booted were worthy of being booted. A crew member could have died if the captain had not made the decision he did.

It is incredible how a story can change in mid stream and become huge.

Had nothing to do with the captins decision . It was right on. The decision of not giving a crap about there customers for not getting what they paid for is the problem. They could have showed the slightest concern.

The customers got credit for the port, and for their excursions. What more do you want them to do, should the captain come and personally appologize to each and every one of them??? The ship did what was right, get over it.
