Senior trip to Dominican Republic descends into disaster after group falls ill

Avoya Travel

A group of Oklahoma teens’ senior trip to the Dominican Republic was ruined when they fell sick with a mysterious illness.

The recent Deer Creek High School graduates flew on June 8 to the embattled Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Punta Cana, where at least two Americans have died and others have fallen ill, news station KOTV reported.

Liz McLaughlin said her daughter, Libby, was among seven members of the group who fell sick — and they have “no idea what’s going on.”

“We just don’t know what is happening,” McLaughlin told the news station. “Is it the water? Is it the ice? Is it the food? Is it the food handling? Is it the pesticides?”

Newlywed downed 4 beers before flight, went on homophobic rant and attacked flight attendants on way to his honeymoon

A man on an easyJet flight was supposed to be on his way to Egypt, where he was set to celebrate his honeymoon with his bride. Instead, he has been handed seven months in jail after he drunkenly assaulted two flight attendants and went on a homophobic rant.

The court heard that he was escorted off the plane by police officers who he abused, calling one of them a ‘baldy c***’. His wife was heard shouting: ‘Look at what you’ve done. You have f****** off our honeymoon!’

Judge David Rennie said: ‘It was like a child having a tantrum. You chose to drink four pints and to behave in a foul-mouthed, highly abusive manner. Something of your true character did reveal itself.

‘We do have to ask why airports are selling that amount of alcohol outside of usual licensing hours.

‘An attack on the perceived sexuality of these men was utterly shameful. People like you find yourself on the edge of society.

‘Only an immediate custodial sentence can be justified.’ 

 
Michael Cunnett, 38, was jailed for seven months today for punching two easyJet crew members after downing four pints of Stella ahead of the 9am flight in February



We survived the cruise accident in Norway — and still recommend Viking

Avoya Travel

Winslow Umberger knew something was wrong when the horizon disappeared. 

Umberger, 66, and her husband Charles were enjoying a leisurely lunch onboard the Viking Sky, a luxury cruiseliner making its way south along the Norweigan coast. There had been some turbulence, sure, but as a ship captain’s daughter, Umberger didn’t think much of it until an enormous wave sent the contents of the kitchen flying in a thunderous crash. 

The waitstaff scurried around “like sandpipers” trying to collect the debris, Umberger said. It was almost comical until the captain’s first “mayday” sounded over the intercom. The ship rose and fell on swells so high that Umberger couldn’t see the horizon.

“It’s kind of surreal — you take these drills on boats, but you don’t ever expect to put those life jackets back on.”
