Typing aboard the liberty...while pulling into hmc...man went overboard. Speculation there was a couple fighting badly in the casino last night and he jumped. Felt like forever to get him but we think we saw movement after they got ohm on the lifeboat. Didn't find any news articles as to what actually happenedOk, now I'm even more confused.
Not to sound crass (Ok maybe i do!). Why would they cancel the stop?They didnt. Port was made at HMC but due to rough water the tenders did not run so no one was allowed off the ship. Or so has been said by the OP.

Sorry for the delay, I have been fighting the satellite signal. So here is what I know. I was walking down the hall to my room when I heard "bravo bravo starboard side". Within seconds I got to my door and could here the other people in our party out on the deck with raised voices. I ran outside to find that they saw the man actually fall below. They had heard people start to scream and they looked over the balcony to see him falling from what they could tell right around the lifeboats. He stayed submerged for what felt like was 30 seconds or so. Someone did manage to throw out a ring and it appeared he had it but we later realized he didn't. I think he tried swimming and fighting the ocean for awhile...and he completely went out of sight...he then reappeared floating on his back. The crew did an excellent job...but it was very scary. When the lifeboAt finally reached him they struggled to get him on the lifeboat but they got him in. When the lifeboat came around and we could see inside they were not performing CPR so we assumed he was awake. We have heard around the ship that he is alive. Somebody on the ship said it was a band member who got into an argument in the casino....not sure about all the details. The whole ordeal probably took about five to ten minutes. What ever the reason ..I hope he is okay.Thanks for the update and sorry to hear about your wedding problems. Hope everything works out ok for you.
I am trying to find any sort of news report about this incident. Has anyone seen anything? "Maybe I am just search challenged" LOLProbably wont hear anything until the ship is back in Miami and people onboard start talking to the press.

And if they have to report back to the US I am sure the news would find out. Very interesting
If Carnival didnt call any other ships or ask for assistance, news about this wouldnt be available.

Thanks for the reply!
someone said that that in a Puerto Rica newspaper claimed that a body had been taken from the shipI would not call that reliable information...but I'm sorry you had to witness such a horrible thing on your trip.
