You know,I came home from work Friday to watch on the Monty show about cruise ships and the people that jump, etc and the dangers of sailing. Being on a cruise is perhaps the easiest way for someone to kill themselves. The show went on to say how cruises are so dangerous and the staff so uncaring when someone gets hurt or falls overboard. Don't take this the wrong way - but ONLY IN MY OPINION - I feel that a cruise ship is as dangerous as YOU make it. If someone puts themselves in a vulnerable p osition, drinks to much, acts like they are asking for trouble, then anything can happen. If a person falls overboard in the middle of the ocean at night -- how the hell is the ship going to find that person? During the day is a much better chance. You don't just 'fall' overboard. We always have balconies, and you cannot just fall over - ok I have spoken enough. I'm sure this will cause some ruckus...but just venting.

I know, one can get injured in your own home.

Hey I'm with you Cherylroy- Anyone that gets themselves so drunk that they fell overboard, should not have been so close to the railing. I've been on several cruises and I believe that is one of the safest ways to travel. Most of those accidents I believe was partially the passenger's fault. Just like with everything in life, you gotta use "common sense" or go with the "gut" feeling.

We were on the Destiny in 2005 when a couple went over board. We were unaware until the morning when we were to dock in Aruba and instead we were still at sea back tracking. I felt so sorry for the family members that were aboard.. and was really upseting that so many of my fellow passangers were complaining that we were going to miss Aruba!!
I don't think cruise ships are any more dangerous than any other type of travel.. I certainly agree with you Cherylroy.

I do feel for the survivors of people who do suicide jumps. I have had suicide in my own family (22 year old neice put a gun to her head) and it is totally devestating to the family they leave behind. Yet they don't think or worry about this as they are not here to pick up the pieces any longer. On another note to comment on your last statement about people complaining. I can understand their complaints on one hand as they have saved for many years perhaps to go on this one vacation only to have it ruined by some selfish sole who wanted to take his/her life. On the other hand, I sympathize with the cruise industry for what they have to deal with. We were to sail the Conquest out of New Orleans when at the mouth of the Mississippi they had a bardge accident and 5 people went missing after their boat turned on its side and sunk. They closed all traffic until they found the bodies. Well, we were put on a bus and sent to Mississippi where we docked there and took off the next day missing one day at sea. The ships that were already docked had to cancel their cruise - so we were lucky! Along with that episode, due to weather conditions, we were unable to dock in the Caymans and had excursions cancelled in Cozumel. You would not believe (maybe you will) the selfish, self centered people that were complaining to the point they had to get the captain in the atrium for a discussion. They wanted to know what Carnival was doing, etc etc etc. I mean beligerant, screaming people! I was so shocked and wanted to shake them and ask them if they had even thought about those families who were waiting along the shore to see IF or WHEN they found their loved ones bodies. Carnival did give us some credit for the missed ports AND 50% off another cruise. Yet people were still complaining. Sorry this is so long.............

We were on the Queen Mary 2 back in 2004 when the ship first came out and we hadhat co a gent who jumped overboard,he left a note,but no one knew the reason as to why but was traveling with his wife and daughter and I believe a family friend. The crew noticed him drinking very heavily and even some other travelers saw him bolt over the rail. They never found the gent,and we were about 6 hours late arriving back into New York.

This puts a damper on things for others and those that ing.commit suicide are very selfish people and don't think of others.

I feel for people traveling with children or really anyone else for that matter. You save for a trip and only to have this happen and be so delayed in departing.

May ths man's soul rest in peace.
