Video footage surfaced of the performance aboard the Holland America Eurodam showing Carrie slurring off-key songs. Her dog joined her, reportedly urinating and defecating on the stage.

Fisher was featured on the cruise as a "surprise" celebrity guest.

The rep says, "There was a medical incident related to Carrie Fisher’s bipolar disorder. She went to the hospital briefly to adjust her medication and is feeling much better now."
