Default Missing man!

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.

Here we go again, I guess, with one of the man overboard stories. From my limited cruising experience, it sure seems to me that you'd almost have to work at falling overboard unless someone did indeed push/throw you over. It's too early to tell this time and I know there are exceptions, but it seems like most people ususally only find themselves overboard if they EXTREMELY intoxicated.

That is so sad. His family must be so upset.

How does somebody fall overboard? I could only think of 3 ways.
1. too much drinking.
2. someone gives you a push (maybe the spouse if he/she wants to cash
in on a life insurance policy.
3. trying to reenact the Leonardo Dicaprio Titanic scene.
