Royal Caribbean Removes Passenger from Cruise Ship for Rowdy Behavior
(12:30 p.m. EDT) -- Royal Caribbean kicked a passenger off Rhapsody of the Seas for rowdy behavior that included throwing items overboard while the ship sailed in the south Pacific.

According to Royal Caribbean, the 29-year-old passenger from Australia was seen throwing two metal stanchions (the poles used to hold queuing line ropes up) overboard from deck nine April 5. He also tried to throw a chair overboard, but was unsuccessful.

"Because this guest violated our Guest Conduct Policy, a decision was made to disembark him the following day in Noumea, New Caledonia, the next port of call," Cynthia Martinez, Royal Caribbean's director of global corporate communications, told Cruise Critic.

Passengers removed from a Royal Caribbean ship for violating the conduct policy are responsible for paying their own accommodations and transportation home.

Rhapsody was near the beginning of an eight-night South Pacific cruise at the time of the incident. Noumea was the first port of call of the sailing.
