Wrongly accused man suing Carnival cruise Line



Carnival Security at work.

I would file a law suit also in this case. I mean really just offering him dinner, His cruise should have been free and a voucher for another free cruise.

Since none of the people involved were interviewed, I wonder if this situation really happened. It could be just a cruise blogger making a video, couldn’t it?

Well, you have to admit that "all you *passengers* look alike". :eyeroll:

(If it really happened) In my opinion, Carnival should have been sued for a lot more.

Since the security team could conceivably be charged with kidnapping (as the passenger was forcibly removed from his stateroom and involuntarily held for 90 minutes), it seems to me that the passenger deserves a lot more than a steak dinner or a free cruise (do you seriously think he would be inclined to cruise on the same line?).

I grew up with Asians since I'm half Asian and we had that line dropped on our group. This was back in the early '80's. We were playing football on a high school field and the ground's keeper came running up yelling that he told us before that we can't play on the field. One of the guys said it wasn't us that he told. And the ground's keeper dropped the line, "Well all you Asians look alike."

LOL! Well I for one definitely don't look like other Asians. Wonder if we could have sued the school district then and retired early. I could have been constantly cruising from the '80's until now!!!

I do worry about being falsely accused of something wrong. I try to dress very nicely all the time and am always thinking about how I look and act. Wish things were different so I could go out and dance on tables a lot more often.

I was mistaken for my husband’s first wife one time at a bank we both used. Her name is also Bonnie. The teller tried giving me some banking info that the other Bonnie had requested. I corrected her, and switched banks even though it was just an error on the teller’s part.

The story regarding Carnival seems to haves many places where I am skeptical that it really happened, but I do prefer to think the security staff are better trained than to behave like they are accused of here.

I agree that there are a lot of discrepancies in this story. First off, your cabin number is not listed on your S&S card, so if indeed that was what was show to the accusing wife...nor cabin number is available. Secondly, security would have been the first to the cabin... they found our friend within minutes when there was a card mix-up and we were in the shops. If there is actual footage of the incident, the original perpetrator would have been easily found ... same story concerning said friend. Mistaken identity can happen, but if all of this is real I would be very surprised.



Here are two more articles on the subject, so sorry gang it looks to be true and not a blogger fabricating a story as some suggested. See how easy some people jump to conclusion with out 10 min of research.

Whether true or fake news, the story was ..... interesting, in my opinion. Happy

Thanks for the additional stories, JusMe, but I tend to trust the network news about as much as I do Facebook or YouTube. It still only takes one person to tell the story to the press, who never tend to verify their stories.

(Although, in this case, I do tend to believe the source.)

I think you nailed the reason I am quicker to not find such stories credible. I'll add my thanks to you, JusMe.
