I wondered about this a few years ago...On my last cruise I noticed that there actually is a place where it is possible to fall off.
During the life boat drill, I noticed that there are several small openings in the railing{to allow access to the life boats/equipment}. The openings have a chain across attached with a hook. SO....if someone removed the chain AND it was dark AND a person was "messing-around" down there( its pretty dark at night) it could happen....Other than that area, I have never seen a place on the ship where a person could fall of accidentally.

That is one of the reasons why I liked the Cat 6E cabins on the Destiny and Conquest Class. It is too bad they are removing them.I have a 2 1/2 year old daughter who loves to climb. The floor to ceiling windows have no railing to climb over.

Well now let’s get real:

It does take more than a little effort to “fall off’ a cruise ship. I worked deep sea and in the Canadian Military and yes it was possible to be washed overboard.

If a person really wanted he or she could fall or jump out of a plane but again it would take a little effort.

I think it would take an idiot to be out on an open deck with waves hitting an 11 story cruise ship tall enough to wash someone overboard. I watch the deadliest catch and I am afraid for those poor fellas and they do it for a living.
I think being washed overboard from a cruise ship is almost impossible UNLESS it is a rogue wave....then it would be maybe possible

We all know someone doesn't just fall off of a cruise ship without doing something they shouldn't be doing. I hope they find the woman alive as a first priority, and find out what happened.

They had her picture on the news this morning, very pretty lady. Sure hope we find out what happened because I know she didn't "fall" off the ship. They also showed the good ol' Holiday in Mobile. There's more to this story than we're hearing.

Hello all,

I actually had friends on this cruise and they told me that this lady and her husband got into a big fight. He went to bed and she went to the bar. Supposidley she got drunk and then committed suicide by jumping off the boat. I personally do not think that many people "fall" off of a boat...it is on purpose by either themselves or someone else.
