Well, since you can't just fall off a ship I'd like to know what happened. Guess he was on there long enough to get drunk and do something stupid.

Perhaps he saw the drink prices and decide to swim back

I'm glad to hear that he survived. You can't just fall off a cruise ship. It requires some intentional and/or unsafe action to accomplish it.

I just have an uneasy feeling that someday in the near future they will enclose balconies and put up even higher, unclimbable, railings in order to stop the despondent and stupid.

Take care,
Mike

The rate at which these incidents happen is scary, as compared to years ago.

Wouldn't surprise me if the cruise lines decide to retrofit the balconies.
