Default Sovereign of the Seas sinks in Bermuda Triangle....

This just in.... Associated Press April 1st, 2006 - Sovereign of the Seas sank early this AM in the Bermuda Triangle while crossing the Gulf stream on the way to Cococay. All passengers and crew aboard are feared lost. A distress signal, SOS, was sent out at about 2:47 AM and then nothing else was heard from the ship. A passing freighter saw a few life vests floating in the ocean that helped identify the ship. The next cruise has been cancelled with passengers recieving a shipboard credit to take the Majesty of the Seas on the same intinerary.

P.S. Happy AFD!

Dave, what I just heard is that it was the same guy who was smoking on the Star Princess and he started a fire on the SoS.

I heard it hit a stray iceberg, went down bow first, then split in two and sank in less than 10 minutes.

I heard the Carnival spring breakers overloaded the ship with booze beyond capacity and sinked the ship.

Dave,

I appreciate "April Fools" jokes as much as anybody, but jokes about a ship sinking really are over the line.

What is funnier than a ship sinking? I have been told I am "one toke over the line" before Norm.

great AF!! Iceberg cracked me up! I'm Irish/Italian so my sense of humor is twisted to begin with!

Personally I heard the ship was actually drag racing another cruise ship from one of those "lesser" lines & Royal won. They fired upon it with cannons & sunk her. But again...that was the remor...
