Just read that a crew member went missing from Oasis of the Seas. When they could not locate him they reviewed video tape and he indeed did go overboard. Happened around Nassau. I believe they cancelled their St Thomas stop. Not releasing any info at this time about the crew member. So far no sign of him/her. My heart and prayers goe out to his family, friends and crew members.

It seems like they need more security people actually monitoring the cameras. All the video equipment seems to be good for now is confirming after the fact that yes, somebody did go overboard. Princess had the same problem a while back with Coral Princess.

I pray they find the person alive and well.

f-mattox I agree with you. Video cameras that are not monitored will only confirm if someone falls or jumps but by the time they are discovered missing it is usually too late to find them. As much as this cruiselines make why can't they have those cameras monitored 24/7? Casinos, and even grocery stores have cameras monitored 24/7. Why can't cruise ships? Isn't there a way to make an alarm sound if anything passes by those cameras? I know when people have witnessed someone go overboard they are almost always recovered.

I'm sure there is and that's an excellent idea.

The thing about the alarm system if there is such a thing. If such a system is put in place, then the issue is only allowing it to sound if something unusual happens, such as someone going overboard. Otherwise, passengers just walking by could set off the alarm.

I sure hate to hear that. I've never heard anything else about the Princess crew member either. You're right having the cameras in place does no good if they aren't being monitored. My thoughts and prayers go out to this person and his family.

Welcome to Cruise-Chat, cruise answers.
