2 passengers from Carnival Cruise Lines ended up in jail on Thursday after stealing. Regional news site Spice is reporting 37-year-old Joshua and 20-year-old Casey from Arizona, United States were visiting Cozumel, Mexico from a carnival cruise ship which was docked at the island for the day.

The 2 passengers had stolen items from 3 different premises at the Royal Village Shopping Centre located just walking distance from the cruise ship. The stealing occurred at around 3PM and they were caught by the facilities security officers and shop staff. Joshua and Casey were then put in a local jail cell.

The Mexican site went on to report the passengers had stolen two pairs of lenses from Sunglass Island (worth about 2,000 pesos each), a pair of sandals and a bag of candy from a pharmacy. Shop managers called for charges against them. Really petty behaviour and thankfully they faced the consequences.

The Carnival Breeze was docked in Cozumel on Thursday as part of a 6-night western Caribbean cruise which departed Miami, Florida on February 21. A member on Cruise Critic says the 2 passengers were from the Carnival Freedom which was also calling at Cozumel as part of a 7-night Western Caribbean cruise.

The member posted “They were from the Freedom. We watched them take the bags and passports off the ship. The ships in port that day were Breeze, Freedom, Holland Eurodam. In Porta Maya the Triumph was downtown.” Carnival Triumph was also docked further away downtown.
