There has been another incident of someone going overboard on a cruise ship, but this time on a Norwegian Cruise Line ship, the Norwegian Pearl. This is the second time something like this has happened this week, and now highlights a concern for people going overboard.
We are told that the Coast Guard had been searching for the woman that went overboard 22 nautical miles off the coast of Cuba, where she is believed to have fallen off the deck.
According to the cruise line, the woman had been observed, “intentionally going overboard”, which is pretty much the reason why such things happen.
What worries us is the fact that such incidents only happen through stupidity, and while there are a few occasions where it is of no fault to the person going overboard, most times it is.
In all the cruises we have been on, it is clear that you will want to go overboard, as it’s very hard for it to just accidentally happen.
The worst thing about this is the family that person has left behind now has to come to terms with the loss, and also Norwegian Cruise Line, as this is negative press through no fault of their own.
