A New Year cruise ferrying fans of American Idol star Taylor Hicks and funk icon Maceo Parker from Florida to the Caribbean and back has returned after a drugs raid.
Reports suggest federal drug agents stormed the ship just before it was due to set sail last week (04Jan11) - with guests looking forward to high seas concerts by Hicks, Parker, the Grateful Dead's Bob Weir and the Robert Randolph Band.
The authorities seized illegal drugs, including Ecstasy and LSD, and arrested several revellers, who did not make the voyage.
The Jam Cruise left port following the raids and returned on Monday (10Jan11), according to Spinner.com.
