It was reported that a man went overboard on Norwegian Sky early Saturday. His age has been reported between 39-46, and passengers reported seeing him go over. Read more about it here.

We hope for a good outcome to this tragedy.


Edited to correct name of ship. - SE

The name of the ship was probably the Sky. The Sky is doing 3 and 4 night Bahama cruises right now. I looked at the ships camera earlier today and wondered why they were still in Nassau when they should be at Great Stirup Cay, this explains it.
We had a man come up missing from my home town last year during a cruise. He was never found.

It bothers me that they can lose track of someone that they actually see go over--unless the person couldn't swim, or was injured on the way down.

Unfortunately the last I read was the search was halted last night. Crew members from Royal Caribbean's Monarch of the Seas, The Disney Wonder, and Norwegian's Norwegian Pearl assisted in the search.

He fell or jumped overboard at 3 AM. It's pitch dark at 3 AM. The man most likely wasn't wearing his lifejacket or a flashlight, assuming he was still conscious after entering the sea. I can easily understand how they could lose sight of a man in the sea at 3 AM.

Falling/jumping from the height of a cruise ship's deck, first available would probably be about 40-50', would be like hitting concrete. Usually, the ones that survive are very drunk. What a horrible tragedy.
