A Crystal Cruises ship bound for Miami changed course Saturday and sailed towards the Bahamas when U.S. authorities issued an arrest warrant for the vessel due to unpaid fuel bills, USA Today reported.
What they're saying: "We all feel we were abducted by luxurious pirates!" one passenger posted on Facebook, according to CBS News.
The big picture: A federal judge in Miami issued an arrest warrant for the ship on Thursday, meaning that a U.S. Marshall would have boarded and taken over the ship once it reached U.S. waters, per CBS News.
State of play: Peninsula Petroleum Far East filed the lawsuit to try and recover $4.6 million in unpaid fuel bills from Crystal Cruises and Star Cruises, which chartered or managed Crystal Symphony, per CBS News.
