A passenger on the Norwegian Majesty was arrested last week in Bermuda on possession of 12 “cannabis joints,” according to a report today in the Bermuda Royal Gazette.
Frank Brazinski, 54, of Pennsylvania, on a week-long cruise from Philadelphia, was discovered with the stash during a random search of the ship by a drug-sniffing dog at St. George’s. An NCL spokeswoman confirmed that sniffer dogs board NCL ships in Bermuda for random searches and that a passenger had been arrested on the Oct. 17 cruise.
According to the newspaper, the joints were discovered in Brazinski’s luggage inside his cabin, and contained 7.59 grams of cannabis. On Thursday, Brazinsky pleaded guilty to importation of drugs into Bermuda and was fined $1,500.
After the discovery of the pot, Brazinsky was disembarked from the ship, which returned to Philadelphia after three days on the island. There was no word on whether Brazinski has since left Bermuda.
