Another Dozen Arrested Before Boarding Holy Ship! 13.0 2019 Cruise

PORT CANAVERAL, Florida – Another dozen people who had intended to board the Norwegian Epic cruise ship to take part in the annual electronic dance music (EDM) festival known as Holy Ship! 13.0 were arrested on Wednesday, January 9, 2019 despite the heavy publicity of arrests made before the first Holy Ship! cruise on Saturday.

The popular EDM festival attracts about 4,000 ravers from across the U.S. who spend anywhere from $900 to $1,800 each to book either the 4-day or 3-day cruise that departs from Port Canaveral, Florida to Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas.

The 3-day cruise is scheduled to return to Port Canaveral on January 12, 2019.

Like the last year, most of this year’s arrests were out-of-state residents with misdemeanor drug possession charges.

A drug-sniffing K-9 accidentally inhaled drugs while searching incoming passengers. The dog suffered a seizure and had to be given Narcan which is used to treat drug overdoses.
