Default People may actually fall off ships

I returned today from a five day cruise on the Triumph, my first cruise. At 340AM on the first night my balcony neighbor said to his wife, " Don,t look I am going to urinate off the balcony." He managed to stand in a chair before his wife pulled him down. They did not know I was on my balcony, and I doubt he knew anything...blitzed on alcohol. He could have easily gone overboard.

Another quick note; The police or Customs people met our ship in Charleston arresting one or more for DRUGS. I think I heard one person was being returned to Nassau for formal charges. The good people on this website warns people, but some never believe it can happen to them. It delayed getting off the ship for the rest of us.

More later, and a review of what I thought of the cruise.

If he had fallen, I guess his death would have been ruled a sewercide.

Oh my gosh! I think I would have yelled something though-just to let him know others are around and some on lower balconies..yuck!! That is totally disgusting!! And unbelievable (well not really, knowing some people)!
Hope the rest of your cruise was good!!

bellyroller, I'm really interested in the rest of your review, as I'm sailing on Triumph in Dec. Hopefully, I won't have the balcony cabin directly below that yahoo!

Actually it is too bad he didn't fall. He would have made an excellent candidate for this years Darwin Award.

DougR-I agree!!

From Brenda (who is still grossed out at the idea of an adult thinking it would be alright to pee off a balcony!! )
