I see where both of them want to stay annonymous. He has elected to continue the cruise and she has elected to return to Texas. Can you imagine the stories he will tell around the bar???

According to one report I just read, Princess reported that the man, who was wearing no clothes when he was rescued, apparently took off his clothes in the water as a survival tactic. I guess that idea will be incorporated into the evacuation drill.

My bet is that they will put up nets like at the hockey games, I wonder whether they allowed them back in their balcony cabins or did they switch them to an inside cabin, with a curfew and put a lock on their door Some people. I just got off the Explorer, had a beautiful balcony in a GS, I stood at my rail everyday and everynight watching the waves it is truly the most beautiful sight and sound.

News said tonight that they are continuing on with the cruise. Wonder if they were moved to an "oceanview" room. Better yet, inside cabin! Yes, the speculation is that S*E*X* was involved. How and why else would both go overboard naked? Alchohol was probably the culprit. We do things under the influence that we would not normally do sober Or as Stuart from Mad TV would say....Look what I can do!

Maybe balconies should be available for 40 + only, let the others have Ocean views. I can't understand why they are allowing him to stay on board? He obviously did NOT just fall so what is preventing him from doing it again.... after a few dozen drinks at the bar. Hopefully they moved him to an inside. Bet he is feeling like quite the celebrity now, he is probably swarmed with curious people wanting to know what it was like to be out in the middle of the Ocean? Some people!!!

And unfortunately, some tabloid or TV show will probably pay him an ungodly sum to tell his (or her) story. Instead of paying for their actions, as you said Leigh, they become celebrities and could benefit from this. Makes me sick.

There is a survival tactic that invloves taking off your pants. I doubt if it really applies here. I was taught and did drills in the Navy to take off my pants, tie knots in the legs, zip it up and by throwing over my head trap air it in. If you keep them wet it can act as a floatation device. It worked in practise, but just taking off your cloths will serve no purpose but to reduce your body temperature faster.

Maybe the guy thought that the cloths would weigh him down thus drowning him? I dont condone what they did or why the cruise line allowed them to stay.

I hope their names are published and the truth is divulged.

We love balcony cabins, but have never had a big desire to jump into the water from there. And getting frisky on the balcony? Give me a break! I'm sure their balcony neighbors weren't very happy about their behavior (could be wrong, I guess!)

That couple is so lucky to be alive. What are the chances of them not being sucked under by the ship's wake, drifting far away from the site where they jumped in, etc?

They owe a debt of gratitude to the ship's crew and the U. S. Coast Guard. They also owe them for the expenses of the rescue.

Maybe passengers should have to pass a common sense IQ test before they are allowed on board!

The rumor is that she was drunk and dancing on the table on the balcony and she slipped and fell off the table into the water. The guy who is from some military school jumped in after her. Not the brightest move.
