Boston cabbie who turned in $187,000 offered a free cruise


BOSTON >> The Boston cab driver who got a $100 reward from a man who left a backpack containing more than $187,000 in his taxi has been offered a free cruise.

Royal Caribbean Cruises on Wednesday offered 72-year-old Raymond "Buzzy" MacCausland and his longtime girlfriend, Sharon King, a seven-day trip to the Caribbean, including airfare to Florida.

King says the Middleton, New Hampshire, couple's lives have been crazy since MacCausland's story made national news.

The money MacCausland found in his cab Saturday had been left there by a homeless man who had inherited it. MacCausland turned it into police, who confirmed its rightful owner.

A Royal Caribbean spokesman says the cruise offer is part of the company's "Ticket to Adventure" program, which rewards people who perform "exceptionally selfless acts."
