10 hours! That would be a strong will to live. Very nice to hear a happy ending to that story.

Anyone every take a swimming life saving course? They teach you to tie your shirt tight at the waist, and blow into the neck for a crude life jacket. Believe it or not, it helps.

All I can think of is how miserable she must have been to be in all of that water...yet become dehydrated. It's a horrible way to spend 10 hours..that's for sure!

Take CARE, All, and THANKS for the GREAT advice, Mermaid!

HOW DO THEY FALL ----- I MEAN, WHAT ACTIVITY REQUIRES THEM TO BE THAT CLOSE TO OR OVER THE RAIL???

I heard the news story on local news, but didn't get any details.
That is really horrible, treading water and worrying about sharks!
The news program said she was in the ship's infirmary. Any more details??

Ya know...either i am a complete moron, the seas were incredibly rough that nite, or NCL's crew really knows how to party after hours....

Good lord! To fall overboard and not be noticed??? Plus, I heard this happened before w/ NCL on another ship.

Kinda makes ya wonder...
