Default Missing man!

ADVERTISEMENTS






MIAMI -- A Royal Caribbean International cruise ship resumed its voyage to Puerto Rico on Tuesday as Coast Guard crews searched for a passenger reported missing a day earlier.

The Freedom of the Seas turned around Monday to return to the waters east of Eleuthera Island, Bahamas, where it had been sailing when the man was last reported seen. The Coast Guard resumed a search of those waters Tuesday by air.

Relatives last saw the 24-year-old man around 1:45 a.m. Monday on his stateroom balcony, and reported him missing about seven hours later, according to the cruise line. The man's name was not released.

The FBI and the Bahamian Maritime Authority were also aware of the missing passenger, according to a statement from the Miami-based cruise line.

The ship, carrying 4,141 passengers, was expected to dock in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on Wednesday afternoon, a day later than scheduled. It will return to Miami on Sunday morning.

The line is operated by Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.

Am I wrong to think the thought that "this man is messing everyone else's cruise up." ???

Is this another case of death by misadventure?

And here's the bad thing about this.

Larger ships carry more passengers. If the same percentage of idiots board the larger ships, then more of them will be going overboard -- literally.

That means more passengers lost, more media coverage, and ultimately the cruise lines having make life more difficult for the rest of us.

I am not shocked anymore by the news of someone missing from a cruise ship. I am amazed, though, that someone could actually fall off or get drunk enough to jump off.
