Drug Bust On Norwegian Majesty

September 3, 2002
NCL's Norwegian Majesty, which has spent the summer trawling a Boston to Bermuda itinerary, has been busted. Again. Police in St. George, Bermuda, found -- and seized -- 33 pounds of cocaine on the ship in mid-August. That's worth about $4.5 million retail. This is the second time Norwegian Majesty has been involved in a drug bust this summer. In May, two female passengers were arrested by Bermuda authorities for possession with intent to supply as well as, for one of them, conspiring to import cocaine.
In this case, an NCL spokeswoman reports that no one has been arrested and that it was members of the crew on Norwegian Majesty "who discovered the narcotics and notified Bermuda authorities." She declined to provide information on other details -- such as where the drugs were found and who was involved (passenger or crew) other than to say that the company is cooperating fully with Bermuda police.
