A former Allure of the Seas passenger plead guilty in U.S. Virgin Islands court on Monday to dealing drugs while on board.

Steven Barry Krumholz, a West Hollywood, California man, admitted to selling ecstasy, methamphetamine and ketamine to his fellow cruise passengers while on a trip in February, the Associated Press reports.

Krumholz was arrested while the boat was docked in St. Thomas. Agents searched his cabin and found more than 142 ecstasy pills, almost 3 grams of methamphetamine, a small amount of ketamine and $51,000 in cash.

Agents also found drugs on another passenger, who claimed to have ordered the drugs from Krumholz prior to the trip and picked them up on board.

Krumholz faces up to 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine at his sentencing, which will occur November 2.

This isn't the first drug ring authorities have busted on a cruise ship: In January, drug-sniffing dogs found $94,000 worth of heroin and cocaine onboard Royal Caribbean's Enchantment of the Seas in Baltimore. Three weeks prior, the ship's crew members were busted trying to smuggle $65,000 worth of heroin and cocaine into the U.S.

Im glad this is cool

I am sad that Mister Krumholz is going away for a long time. Drug dealing is accepted in the gay community, I just wish violence, extortion and worse wasnt accepted along with the drugs. So long as the victim is ugly, uncool, or lonely, its ok so long as theres a good party for the dj crowd. Unfortunately, the ones in the gay candy store and extortion ring that need to be locked up are still free.

Hey cool kids, could you watch out for those who are being looted to pay for your party? Would it kill you? It might mean that free bag might not be free.

Straight folks this is gay men squabbling and doesnt have any bearing on drugs or violence on non gay cruises or events. Thanks.

I guess this brings a whole new meaning to 'sailing on the high seas!"

142 pills, 3 grams of meth & some K.
So it's not like he's an (obvious) drug king pin, I wonder why bail was set so high.
(must of been the 51k in cash, which I'm sure was "confiscated")

The owner of Atlantis Events, Rich Campbell, was good friends of Steven Krumholtz. Rich Campbell always knew that heavy duty drug selling occurred on his cruises, and many rumors of Rich Campbell's involvment in the drug trade on board his cruises have arisen over the years.
