Typical Carnival behavior...

Naval Academy Looking at Cruise Behavior
Tuesday, March 27, 2007

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -- The Naval Academy said Tuesday it is investigating allegations of lewd behavior and heavy drinking by a group of midshipmen on a spring break Caribbean cruise.

One passenger wrote that she and other women were groped, and that some of the midshipmen offered alcohol to teenage girls on the cruise.

The allegations hit as the academy has been trying to stop alcohol abuse and sexual impropriety following two sexual misconduct cases allegedly involving academy football players.

"The Naval Academy is reviewing allegations of possible misconduct involving midshipmen aboard a cruise ship during spring break," March 10-18, the academy said Tuesday in a statement.

"Typically, midshipmen are in a leave status during this time and are expected to abide by the academy's clear standards regarding appropriate behavior both in and out of uniform," the statement said.

The investigation began after a woman on the Carnival Cruise Lines ship Glory complained in an e-mail to the academy that a group of eight to 10 male midshipmen were acting in a "lewd" manner, The (Baltimore) Sun reported Tuesday.

"I was 'felt up' by one of the very drunk men and I was given the misfortune of watching them grab and disrespect every woman they could get close to as well as seeing them offer underage (15 and 17 year old) girls at our table alcohol," the woman wrote.

In a March 18 posting on cruisecritics.com, another passenger described "a group of boys from the Naval academy" who were "being very loose with their hands when talking with the ladies."

The academy has suffered bad publicity since star quarterback Lamar Owens Jr. was charged with raping a female midshipman in January 2006.

A jury found Owens not guilty of rape but convicted him of conduct unbecoming an officer and disobeying a lawful order. Vice Adm. Rodney Rempt, the academy's superintendent, recommended Owens be dismissed despite his acquittal. Owens is appealing.

Another former football player, Kenny Ray Morrison, faces a general court-martial Monday on two counts of indecent assault and two counts of conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman for allegedly assaulting two female midshipmen during separate incidents last year.

The academy earlier this month outlined plans to have its 4,000 midshipmen take classes this fall to raise awareness about sexual harassment and its consequences. Women make up about 19 percent of the academy's student body.

No, I went to a small liberal arts school. I studied business but majored in partying!

Dave,

Not to throw a wet blanket on your party, but I've been reading around the boards about how RCCL is really cracking down on smuggling. They even state that you can be denied boarding.......

Are you planning to bring your "supplies" with you on your next cruise? If so, I'm curious to see if you are successful.

I've always had no trouble bringing supplies with me, I just put them in my checked bag, and away I go. But I've not cruised for a couple of years, and the policy seems to be tightening.

I have this feeling that you would manage to have fun in the Jamiacian jail and be left out on your own accord - granted you make some promises to your captors...

Dave: you may want to cut back out the amount of parties you go to or beat a little more selective hahaha.

I am not sure what shorts you were referring to: the tie-died bike shorts or the "S&M" biker shorts. LMAO either way, if you were to wear either one, we want pictures ROTFLMAO..... holy carp that must have been some party; surely there are more pics.

I think it's time you organized a cruise and include me, my friends, significant others, etc. etc. I've loved your posts since I went on my first cruise with my gf Maryann from Chicago....
This cabin decorating contest - what a great idea!!!
