It wouldn’t be the world’s largest-ever gay cruise without some on-board drug dealers. How else are the party bois gonna enjoy fun in the sun without their 8-balls? That’s where Steven Barry Krumholz, a 51-year-old man from West Hollywood, came in, customs officials say. Krumholz was arrested on suspicion of selling drugs to passengers aboard the Allure Of The Seas, which Atlantis leased from Royal Carribean for its 5,400-passenger sail. Cuffed and taken away from the ship while it docked in St. Thomas, Krumholz’s cabin was allegedly stocked with 142 ecstasy pills, three grams of meth, some Special K, and $51k in cash. The best part of this story is that while authorities were searching his cabin, two fellow passengers stopped by. To score.
Some sleuth-y readers have already found a “Steven Krumholz” on Facebook who lives in Los Angeles and works for the website SBKTravel.com, which makes me think perhaps this isn’t the first time Mr. Krumholz may have used travel excursions as a business opportunities?
As the website Cruise Law News noted last week, when it comes to gay cruises one of the biggest concerns isn’t stocking enough SPF and condoms, but having enough medical professionals on board to handle overdosing. Remember Spencer Yu?
But let’s not pretend Mr. Krumholz — whose crimes are only alleged at this point, everyone — might be the only drug dealer on board this Atlantis cruise. With 5,400 passengers, a good chunk of whom are there to PnP, 142 ecstasy pills and a few grams of meth aren’t going to satisfy everyone.
(Just remember: Deborah Cox doesn’t have to pay for her share.)
Happy 20th anniversary Atlantis?
