Default Anyone hear of Man Overboard on Triumph Apr. 7th?

Stories were circulating on board the Triumph that someone fell or jumped overboard when the Triumph was leaving Cozumel. Is this just a modern myth?

I've heard lots of stories esp in Cozumel of people getting drunk and falling off the pier as they were boarding to head out to sea.

Haven't heard anything as of yet. Will see if anyone knows anything or not. I don't want to speculate as I don't like to spread rumors.

A man fell off the Celebration last weekend. Here is an article from the Houston Chronicle about it:

Thanks for the newspaper post. Boy that guy was lucky to have lived! I loved the part where they said he was in a bar till the early morning hours -- yep, I think we know how he fell (just wonder who picked up his Sail and Spend charges?.)

That's exactly what I thought, Harry!

"I really don't know what happened," Sears said. "The boat left Galveston about 4:30 Saturday afternoon and the last thing I remember was me and my buddy talking to some girls in the casino around midnight.

"The next thing I knew I woke up in the water."


That pretty much says it all!

Cheers,

To honor his survival, Carnival should name a frozen thingee after him---maybe " the plunger "--- with a warning---" can be dangerous to your health after 23 of these "

Just another example of how dangerous it can be to hit on the bartender's girl. . . .

All: Thanks for the info. I suspect the rumours on the Triumph were spawned by the incident on the Celebration! That is one lucky man. We were opining whether someone would survive the drop to the water from a higher deck, I guess this is a little bit of research. It's not a study I would like to participate in.

PS: I have submitted a lengthy review of the Triumph Western Caribbean Apr 5-12, hope is shows up soon.
