Has anyone heard anything about a woman going overboard on a NCL ship yesterday?

Are you referring to the 39 yo woman who is belived to have jumped after becoming angry and agitated with her boyfriend? I believe this happened on May 8 of Florida. She was on the Costa Mediterranea. I'm sorry but jumping into the ocean from a moving cruise ship is not something I could fathom but desperate people do desperate things.

This is going to come across wrong so, sorry in advance. With a girlfriend that unstable and out of control, as tragic as the story is, that guy is in for a much smoother life. Can you imagine someone thinking, "I'll show him!" and actually jumping off a moving ship at sea? I'm betting it didn't take long for her emotional state to go from anger and revenge to something entirely different. What a shame.

Cheers, Neil

Probably before she hit the water.

Here is your sign. Joking aside she really needs help, or had she had a few two (yes I mean two not too)many drinks.

Buppa-Thank You for the news thread. It is hard to imagine a passenger falling overboard-still one never knows. I suspect drinking,bad tempers,arguments and/or terminal diseases play a more significant role in these missing persons reports. Any passenger or crew lost at sea is sad. At this time of year with low water temperatures in that region of the Atlantic it is not likely she survived. Our thoughts,prayers and best wishes for the family of that passenger.

The latest report is this woman was trying to climb from one balcony to another. Another finalist for the 2008 Darwin Awards, if true. Read it here

I guess it was too much trouble to walk all the way around and use the door.

Sorry, I don't mean to mkae fun of it; it's tragic: incredibly stupid and tragic.

And once again, more fuel added to the fire that could end up with balconies becoming cages in the name of litigation minimization.
