Bomb Threat to Carnival Sensation March 28, 2010

March 28, 2010 Bomb Threat - Carnival Cruise Lines - Carnival Sensation

A bomb threat was allegedly uttered by a passenger aboard Carnival Cruise Line's, Carnival Sensation on March 28, 2010. The utterance, said to come from an allegedly drunken man named Ibrahim Khalil Zarou, 31, from Leesburg, Virginia put a scare into passengers and crew aboard the cruise ship.

It was reported that people heard Zarou say, "'We Are Jihad" and "Come to the top deck and watch the bomb.", which he claims was a miscommunication, a language translation issue.

Zarou was arrested and later released on $10,000 bond. The excited utterance was discovered to be a hoax.

The arrested passenger had been sailing in a party of a dozen or so passengers. Carnival Sensation was coming back into Port Canaveral, Florida after having completed a 3-night cruise to the Bahamas.

Coast Guard, FBI and local law enforcement checked Carnival Sensation, finding no explosives.

What makes this particular cruise ship bomb threat a reason to pause is the fact that exactly 3 years prior, Carnival Sensation received a bomb threat at this same port. Coincidence? See Carnival Sensation Bomb Threat.
