Australian Police Hit Jackpot on Sea Princess

When Sea Princess arrived in Sydney on Sunday no one was more excited to see it than the police. Sydney was the end of a lengthy cruise which had come from Southampton and New York and around South America, calling at a half dozen ports, and across the South Pacific to Australia, so it was classified as “high risk” by the authorities for having illegal drugs aboard.

Australian police had also been tipped off by US authorities about several passengers whom they considered “high risk” to be carrying drugs. So when Sea Princess docked, the police took their drug-sniffing dogs aboard and let them sniff around including the “high risk” passengers.

The complete story appeared in the August 29 edition of Cruise News Daily.
