Didn't someone seize a warship recently for debt from a court judgement related to the country nationalizing a business 30 years ago?

Must have been horrible, the value of the boat went down to $800 million...

Holy crap boats can be expensive!

You know, for a ridiculous story, I have to say, on the quips front - this thread delivers by sea.

Cruise Ships Should Be Burned Before Leaving Port.  CSSB3LP.  It's basically my mating call nowadays.

I'm sure you're beating the ladies back with a stick with such a great pick up line?

Men don't have mating calls. Women do though: "I'm so wasted!"

While amusing, it sounds like a petty oversight.  The unpaid fee was $100,000 which is basically nothing to Royal Caribbean, as the article says the fee was paid within an hour of them "seizing" the ship.  As a matter of fact, I believe large ships carry this kind of  cash in a safe on the bridge or in the captains quarters just in case they ever have to pay for emergency services or port fees.

Was an effective method of getting their money though, thats for sure... lol.
