How sad that another passenger has fallen overboard. Wondering if people are accidently going over or willingly going over.After so many cruises, I'm sure you know that there is no way to accidentally go overboard. Either she jumped, was drunk and did something lacking in good judgement, or she was a victim of foul play.

Does anyone know if Carnival has lower railings than other ships?No, but Carnival does have higher decks.
Not that this is particularly relevant, but it struck me as very odd that the crew reported hearing a "loud splash"....with the sounds the ship makes when it is cruising, just the waves against the sides alone, I can't imagine being able to hear anything if a person goes over, let alone a "loud" splash?It is fairly quiet late at night on a cruise ship. It is believable that someone heard a splash.
I have cruised on Carnival 3 times. They are the "Fun Ship" line which caters to drinkers, smokers and the party crowd. Thus your passengers will tend to more likely be drunks and risk takers. Alcohol and implusive behavior leads to poor decision making. I assume most overboard incidences are due to poor judgement induced by excess alcohol comsumption. Criminals also fit this profile thus you are more likely to be murdered while on board. No such problem with Holland America. Most of the elders on board can't jump over the rail nor push anyone over. HAL ships have a morgue. Usefull for passengers who die of old age.Did you just join CC so you could insult people or do you have other goals in mind?
Gimme a break already with this crap. Anybody who goes overboard on a cruise ship is either suicidal or an idiot. Look at the guy who fell off near Tampa. Standing on the railing to get a beter view. C'mon. Before you know it, the NTSB or some other government agency, with their infinte wisdom and compassion will mandate the erection of huge ugly barriers that you can't get over. By the way, lets get rid of veranda rooms while were at it. That will ruin the cruise experience, but boy, will we ever be safe!Im with you DONR, lets hope that doesn't happen!
