I doubt anyone in their "right mind" would commit fraud to set sail on a cruise ship...but apparently I am wrong!
An Australian native, Wendy Baulch did just this recently. She was accidently transferred over $93,000 into her bank account, so what does she do, she books herself on a Ms. Amsterdam cruise for 36 days, leaving from Sydney, Australia. Then she got bold and booked herself for another cruise trip, thinking she must have won the lottery. She did get to enjoy her first leg of the cruise, except she was arrested as she was set to embark on her second cruise. Her miss-hap, she withdrew a sum of $15,000 from her account, to have some extra spending money on board. She was arrested and plead guilty to fraud charges. The judge sentenced her to 18 months behind bars! I'm not sure that cruise was worth committing a crime!
