A dream cruise turned into a nightmare for passengers after their ship was overrun with more than a thousand men from a tobacco company who held wild parties featuring women dressed as Playboy bunnies.

Passengers described how the men proceeded to run amok, taking over the pool decks, bars and buffets.

They were also said to have brought burlesque dancers onboard, who starred in parties on deck.

The men would also harass other passengers and film young girls on their mobile phones, passengers said.

The workers brought “crates and crates” of their own food onto the ship, which underwent extensive refurbishments in 2014.

Christine Weyling, from the state of New South Wales, said Royal Caribbean should have told passengers such a large group would be onboard.
