KRBD FM Community Radio for Southeast Alaska has an interesting story today about cruise passengers aboard the broken down Celebrity Millennium cruise ship calling 911 in Ketchikan out of fear that a "riot" would break out.
It seems like some cruise passengers were unruly about the cancellation of the cruise and communications about where the passengers were to be flown.
A local police chief told KRBD:
“We, the police department, received three 911 calls from passengers on the MV Millennium who stated that people were getting unruly on board the ship, and they believed a riot was about to begin. Officers responded to the ship, met with ship security and advised them of the 911 calls. Ship security and officers contacted approximately 500 guests on the third floor of the vessel, and subsequently peace was restored and officers left.”

Just imagine if the Millennium was stuck in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico for four or five days.
