Passengers describe 'drug-fuelled orgy' on cruise ship

Passengers on a Royal Caribbean ship that was being filmed for a TV reality show earlier this month have alleged some guests turned the trip into a 'drug-fuelled orgy'.

MailOnline reports passengers likened Vision of the Seas to a 'floating Geordie Shore', with people allegedly snorting cocaine on sun beds and partygoers vomiting in the pool and over the side.

One British man was arrested when the ship docked in France.

The Mail described the sailing, from Barcelona to Cannes, as a 'cocaine carnage cruise'.

Footage was shot by a film crew working for a Channel 4 reality show Shipmates, which follows 10 Brits on the cruise and which will air later this year.

The Mail said there is no suggestion anyone in the production of Shipmates was involved in any wrongdoing and Channel 4 said it could not comment on the behaviour of other passengers

Vision of the Seas set off from Barcelona on June 7 for the five-day cruise, which was chartered by a company called Anchored Cruises.

A Royal Caribbean spokesman said: "We have a zero tolerance policy for the use or possession of illegal drugs on our ships. Ship charters are held to the same strict standards.

"We operate with the health and safety of our guests and crew as our highest priority, and we co-operate fully with law enforcement when we are aware of violations.

"The reported activities are entirely at odds with our values and contrary to the terms of the charter agreement.

"We have a strict conduct policy and the Anchored charter was expected to uphold the same strict standards."

A spokesman for Anchored told the Mail: "Anchored has a zero tolerance drugs policy. Upon boarding the vessel customs officials used sniffer dogs and other measures to ensure drugs were not take on board and it is our understanding no drugs were detected.

"The company maintains the highest standards and takes any such allegations seriously.

"A full investigation has been launched to ensure the safety and security of all passengers at future events."
