    Fat chance finding a lawya in floridah that will stick his neck out for someone on the registry that society and the justice system have legally classified as unredeemable deplorables.

    Something about this story is not adding up. You have a “new paramour” named Robert, whom you need to get to know better during the cruise. Yet, you have a ‘legally married spouse’ named Bobbey or Bobby?
    What is this asking who ‘Bobby’ is ?
    Are Robert and Bobbey the same person? Are you a same sex couple? Are you a swinger? Something just is not making any sense here with your story.
    Cruises are stupid wastes of time anyway. Get your money back and do something productive with your time instead of idolizing the idea of hedonism for a vacation.

      What kind of advice/support is this? Something does not add up. Perhaps you need to try to appear that you support this organization. But this type of a comment can only come from a non supporter and should be banned

    Royal Caribbean does not allow registered offenders on their cruises. I also received notice 3 days before a cruise (in 2016) that I would not be permitted. However, RC did refund all my money. I think their Security Group simply rejects all SOR’s.

      Not true… i’m registered, convicted in 1996 in Wisconsin but always lived in florida my whole life. I’ve been on a dozen cruises. Including one when I bought a Kia in 2013 from fucillo Kia. Several with Royal Caribbean, NCL, Carnival and Costa. Last one was 2016 and it was first time I received letter they needed more info before permitting me to go. I was in a wedding that was occuring on the ship before we departed. So kinda important they should allow me to board. I sent letters of recommendation including my friends to be married contacted security. 24 hours later they approved me to go on the cruise. It’s a case by case basis in my opinion. My circumstance is I was 19 she was 15 and consensual. No violence. I’ve also accumulated letters of reference from employers, lawyers, colleagues and friends over the years. I have 2 children myself that are in college now. I think when people hear my actual circumstance added together with list of recommendations and character references, it changes things. I also hold professional license with state of florida for last 17 yrs in good standing. I think that helps too. If florida vetted me and gave me my professional license, it lowers the alarm others have. It does suck with this label though. Every employer has had to defend their position of hiring me from co workers or even customers. Amazingly, never been fired. They always have my back. My suggestion, be a stand up person. Be honest. Don’t violate any laws and build relationships with employers, co workers, colleagues and friends and build a list of recommendations and letters of character reference. Not something you can acquire over night. But over decades it begins to lighten the nightmare we live in. I also talk to the sheriff’s office, explain my circumstance, share what I do, and fact I’ve owned homes for years, I don’t get into trouble, haven’t been arrested since this conviction, even the sheriff’s office when they do address verifications is far and few between. I want to discuss with the sheriff so I’m not on their target list to harass me.

    Of course they can do this to you. You are under the misconception that registered sex offenders have rights.

      You know what Byron I don’t think I could have said it better myself. I also think this applies to non-registered citizens as well just not to such a degree that it is totally obvious.

      What I’m NOT use to is being robbed. Do you think they had right to NOT refund my money.

      Sadly there are s.o.’s who think we don’t have rights. This attitude is sometimes used to wallow in a pity party. This attitude stifles personal growth.

      We s.o. may not have the same rights as non-cons, so we work within those modified laws, in order to accomplish the work that NARSOL does.

    Your offense was from 1983 and they’re holding it against you now only because it involves that horrible thing we call “sex”.
    Sell the car, hire an attorney and sue their asses off. Make sure your attorney asks them in court, in front of the judge, if they would have denied a former bank robber or drunk driver that caused someone’s injury or death. Make them sweat!
