All of this over $50.00, about $8.33 a person. They should have been smarter than this.

The other thread on this topic has reached an ending point I believe...hopefully this will do it.

It's not quite over yet, they have not been sentenced. I'm sure they hope they will just be fined and can come home. Nobody wants to do jail time, especially in a foreign country. I'm sure this has been a humbling experience for this group and will act appropriately in the future.

I'll make one last comment and then forget it ever existed--- when they do get home, what awaits??
Oprah, t.v. talk shows, press conferences, maybe a book deal ??
You can bet that Antigua will be made out to be the most horrendous Island in the Caribbean !!

Happy sails to all, even those who dare to go to Antigua !!

For some reason I do not think so.

Though not the same type incident, look at what happened to Aruba after the girl disappeared. Bad press for quite some time.
Plus Carnival has decided not to sail there again.

I couldn't see them getting their 15 minutes of fame out of this either, although I think you were being sarcastic. Really being a jerk doesn't qualify, IMHO, for tv time unless they make it on the tv series COPS Antigua.

Bad boy bad boys,,wacha gonna do,,wacha gonna do when the cruise ship leaves?
