Default Man overboard!..........again!

if you are going to OB, do it on the way back.

Cruise passenger missing after falling overboard off Bahamas

The Associated Press
3:03 PM EDT, April 18, 2009

MIAMI - The Coast Guard is searching for a 39-year-old man who went overboard a Norwegian Cruise Line ship off the Bahamas.

The incident happened early Saturday morning, about 60 miles north of Nassau.

The man was not immediately identified, but fellow passengers saw him go overboard.

The ship was headed to Nassau, its first port of call on a three-day voyage. Several cruise ships in the area were assisting Coast Guard crews in the search.

How's that song go? Is it, "Another one bites the water?" Well, something such as that at any rate.

My wife came in from work a short time ago and said she heard on the car radio some guy had OB'd from an NCL ship but she just caught part of it and didn't get much info, but it does appear someone didn't keep their feet on the deck and their arse went over !! Oh well. Hope him all the luck but he's probably history !

Passengers watch as man goes overboard on NCL cruise ship
4/20/2009 8:36 AM


The U.S. Coast Guard has called off a search for a 39-year-old passenger who went overboard this weekend from Norwegian Cruise Line's Norwegian Sky.

The agency says it searched an area of nearly 590 square miles Saturday using aircraft from bases in Miami and the Bahamas. A Coast Guard spokesman tells industry watcher CruiseCritic.com there is "no reasonable expectation that he would still be alive."

A statement from NCL says fellow passengers witnessed the man go overboard early Saturday as the ship was sailing toward the Bahamas.

"A male guest was reported overboard from Norwegian Sky by occupants of his stateroom who witnessed the incident," the statement says. "The ship immediately began a search and rescue operation and notified relevant authorities."

The Norwegian Sky had departed Miami on Friday on a three-day cruise to the Bahamas and was approaching Nassau when the incident occurred. Due to its participation in the search for the passenger, the vessel arrived a half day late in Nassau on Saturday and was forced to cancel its Sunday port call at NCL's private island. The vessel returned to Miami early today.

This statement leaves so much to the imagination....was he drunk, and fooling around, was he sitting on the railing? Was he depressed? We can read so much itto this innocuous statement...Did the pals try and do anything to stop him? Inquiring minds want to know!

NOOOOOO I bet he just thought it was the door to the outside.

YA THINK

There is always going to be someone who drinks too much, misses someone too much, spends too much and is really in debt and thinks this is the answer.

I was on this cruise - just got home yesterday. Word on the ship was that he and his wife were having an argument and he jumped off the boat. Was just wondering if this was the same couple I saw in the elevators earlier that night - The man called the woman a nasty term, she slapped him and he hit her back - What a crazy vacation it was!

May:
All I can say is YIKES

What a horrible to see.

They could have waited until they got home?

It sure made a bad situation for a lot of people who didn't deserve it.

I still bet there were many drinks involved.

Friday nights weather was not good to start with, we were already dealing with 10-15 foot seas and the wind was crazy!!! Felt like a mini hurricane - no one would have survived a fall like that in that kind of weather, esp. at night!! At one point in the search/recovery effort on Saturday afternoon, a orange lifesaver was spotted but there was no one in it. My boyfriend got some pictures of the Coast Guard Helicopter coming down to check it out. I feel bad for the family, I can't even imagine how the wife must feel.

What a awful thing for his family. No closure at all.

Delicate thing to ask...was any money refunded to the passangers for the late arrival and the no stop at the port?

Nope. Nothing! "Since it was not NCL fault, there is nothing we can do about it - your best bet is to write a letter" is what my family was told.
I will never go on another NCL cruise again. The food was nasty (my boyfriend was sick for 2 days) , A/C did not work even after having it serviced, 70% of the staff didn't speak english - it was one thing after another.

Thanks may1380 for the live coverage. Why can't people just get along?

I don't care how someone may aggravate me, I would not OB. I would just get away from her.

I so agree with you Dave

Maybe she gave him a gentle nudge in the right direction

OB solves the immediate problems...not the happy ones that you may have if you only just get away from the "abuser"....
life is way too precious.

On my last cruise there was a guy at the pool bar everyday that was telling me he was fighting with his GF. We talked, had some beers. For the length of the cruise I never saw them together. I also noticed a pretty hot 40's something chic at the pool. She was friendly we talked had some beers. She was from my area. So was he. Never did figure it out until I saw them together getting off of the ship and it dawned on me. They spent four days doing their own thing. He even went down and got a different cabin. Strange. AT least neither one of them OB'd.
