New Delhi: More than 1,000 Indian Gutka company workers onboard a Royal Caribbean International became a nightmare for other passengers travelling on the ship. The workers held parties where women were dressed as Playboy bunnies. “It was crazy…little Playboy bunny outfits, you know this is a family boat. I think that they should have notified us that there was a big group that had been booked and had booked the pool deck out…everyone on that ship should have been notified,” Newsweek quoted a passenger as saying.
