If she jumped or was pushed off the ship into Alaskan water she is no longer alive. That water is too cold. I feel bad for her family. If she jumped I hope she left a note. So her family knows what happened.

Default Jumping/Falling off the Ship

Well, you're never going to find an article about me "falling" off the ship. My knees are so bad, I couldn't climb up onto the railing in order to "fall" off. I guess there's some benefit to getting older......

And I just mentioned to my husband and our friend - "If you ever find out I am missing on a cruise ship.....trust me....I did NOT jump!!!"

I cannot imagine how awful it would be to die that way.

If it was suicide they may not want to leave a note because most life insurance companies wont pay out for a suicide. This may also be a reason the suicide from a cruse ship is growing because it is harder to determine if it was a suicide or an accident.

There was a report in a NY paper that the passenger missing from the
Sapphire , actually jumped off the stern of the ship. It was part way between
Ketchikan and Vancouver Island . Princess camera shows her jumping.
