Over a Dozen People Were Arrested Before Holy Ship Set Sail

A few passengers didn't make it on board for Holy Ship this past weekend. Their plans to party aboard the Norwegian Epic cruise ship ended quickly when Brevard County Sheriff’s Office showed up.

The 3-day cruise departed from Port Canaveral, Florida last Saturday, leaving behind over a dozen would-be festival goers who were arrested for drug possession. There’s goes their $1,000 and a fun weekend.

Sadly, the same thing happened last year before Holy Ship with nearly two dozen arrested over both weekends. After all those arrests last year, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol worked in a joint effort to search cruisers even more thoroughly. This included drug dogs as well as the usual searches.

Beats At Sea, who runs Holy Ship, has yet to comment on these arrests. Norwegian Cruise Lines has released this statement:

“We have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to prohibited items aboard our ships, within our terminals, or at our destinations. Along with the organizers of the event, we are cooperating fully with local law enforcement to ensure the welfare of all guests attending the festival. The event has been an incredibly popular and meaningful music experience for thousands over the years, and it is unfortunate that the actions of a select few reflect poorly on such a beloved festival.”

Holy Ship is set to leave port again this weekend for its second leg.
