A German couple is suing TUI Cruises whom they allege had then removed from a ship on the first day of a two-week cruise for having sex too loudly.
BRIDGETOWN, BARBADOS – According to the Reise Reporter, a German couple has been kicked off a TUI Caribbean cruise ship for reportedly having loud sex in their cabin with the balcony door open.
While the vessel was anchored off Barbados, Renate F, and her husband, Volker, told Reise they were having very loud “consensual sex” but forgot that their balcony door was open.
Later, Volker was in the shower and Renate smoking a cigarette on their balcony when a manager, accompanied by a security guard, came to their room and told them the captain had ordered them to leave the cruise ship.
After disembarking in Barbados, the couple say they were stranded, and were forced to pay thousands of Euro to catch a flight back to Paris, where they took a train home to Germany.
The couple is now thought to be suing the holiday company for damages, including compensation for “pain” and reimbursement for travel expenses.
They claim the tour operator and the captain “violated their duty of care”.
In a statement to the Resie Reporter, TUI said: “Due to a security-related incident, we have made use of our house right and asked the guests to leave the ship.
“This was done to protect the guests themselves and other fellow travellers.
“There has already been correspondence with Mrs F. in which we have set our view of things.”
“Please understand that we do not want to comment on the privacy of our guests in detail.”
TUI’s terms and conditions state: “If in the opinion of the Carrier’s representative, the Passenger’s behaviour is disruptive, threatening or abusive or is causing or is likely to cause danger or distress to others, the Carrier may terminate that Passenger’s travel arrangements without any liability on the Carrier’s part and the Passenger will not be entitled to any refund for unused or missed services or costs incurred resulting from the termination of the travel arrangements.”
