I am serious. No interviews for this two, because they were put back on the cruiseship.

They should get a big fine from the Coast Guard for polluting the environment. Kudos to Princess for cleaning up the environmental damage.

How much does it cost to turn around a ship??? Send them the bill. Passengers should also set up a class action against these two for their collective interrupted holiday. Lawyers? On your marks.

Watch out for the Bobbitt Fish.

I'm sure everyone is glad that the 3 were rescued this week. I'd love to hear this latest story! i too told my husband not to get any ideas about the balcony railing!! My hubby and I do not drink, but we don't have a problem with those that do...until thier problem becomes our problem. Eventually all these overboards are going to come back to the rest of us in increased cruise fares. Someone has to pay for the searches and rescues..not to mention any lawsuits these people might impose on the cruise lines for allowing them to drink their selves stupid. i for one sure don't want to see balconies with bars across them every few feet inches to keep them from going over!

Again, I'm glad they are safe

I heard the same story... Allowed back on the ship, under a doctors care, but still able to continue on their cruise.... go figure.... bet they'll be watched the rest of the week and hopefully moved to an inside cabin!!!

I find it interesting, in the few interviews about this incident I have watched, no reporter has asked, how one "falls" off a ship. No one is asking, were they drunk, or, isn't it hard to fall overboard, given the height of the surround?

I think, no reporter has cruised

Hence my frustration with the media reports!

On one of the morning shows this morning, they interview a guy that was rescued in the gulf after 18 hours. I think he came off the Conquest. His story was that the last thing he remembered was being in the casino, looking for "whoever" and the next thing he knew he was in the ocean. He believes that someone put something in his drink. He said that it was his military training the enabled him to stay focused and stay alive.

The media doesn't ask why or how because we all know that that question doesn't gather sensationalism.

Now I believe the part about something in the drink. I am always telling my kids to throw it away,instead of taking the chance. It happens on land, why not on a ship.

She has stayed in Mexico "to get medical help" (my emphasis) and he decided to continue his cruise!!!!! Folks, what is wrong with THIS picture?

I guess he is now looking for partner #2 to join him in a naked railing ballet....

He's a celebrity now, so it shouldn't be a problem finding suitable candidates....

Opening line.... "So.... can you swim?"

cynic that's
at least strap on a bungee cord first; the landing and bumps may hurt, but it won't slow the cruise down.

Nice quote Kuki

"Ah yes, to be politically correct, and to be in tune with our mother earth, and to prevent further deterioritation from global warming"

Was that sarcasism at my post? I'm so hurt and surprised at your tone. Iam just misguided and need your direction...

Oh Trip!!! That is a funny picture. There is Kuki, standing where he can see the balconies, with his white socks, and leather sandals. Red and yellow polka dot shorts, with whistle, yelling, "Get your butt back on that ship!! " Hey you!! Put your clothes on!! " Oh nice lady you have there, but man, you are to old for this!!"

We all know Superman, Spiderman, Batman, they protect the world from evil doers..Now we have "Kukiman" saving the cruiseship world, from "doers."

NO balcony paying passenger,on any ship, sailing the 7 seas will ever fear again, that a naked couple will drop from above, and land on the assorted pastry plate!

Maybe PaulB could write him a theme song!
