Bermuda's Royal Gazette reports that George Koumoulis, a passenger on Norwegian Cruise Line's Norwegian Dawn admitted making what he said was a "stupid, stupid mistake" by possessing cannabis when the ship arrived at Heritage Wharf in Dockyard on last week.
Passengers aboard the ship, which had sailed from New York, complained they smelled the odor of cannabis (that would be marijuana, or weed, in case you wondered) coming from the room the 37-year-old financial analyst from Abingdon, Maryland shared with his brother. Cruise ship staff investigated and found Koumoulis, as well as his stash and rolling papers.
Bermudian Police were informed and Koumoulis admitted the drugs were his.The Bermuda government takes drug offenses seriously and the man was fined $1,500. He also missed the rest of his cruise back to New York. Not only was his a stupid mistake (although we consider it intentional), it was costly as well.
