Carnival stands by its protocol and take all threats to security seriously. One woman was sentenced for a bomb threat. After a night of reveling over a few cocktails, while on a cruise in the Caribbean 31-year-old Sarah Kirby lost her balance, managed to flop over the regulation 42-inch-high railings of her balcony and plunged about 100 feet into the dark waters below. Don’t worry, she actually lived to tell the tale, and was rescued after spending two hours adrift at sea. Rather than offering kudos to Carnival for saving her life, Kirby turned around and sued them for the incident, claiming that they not only took too long finding her, but they were also somehow responsible for pushing Long Island ice-teas on her by offering $5 casino incentives per drink purchase. She lost.
