My dad is currently on the spirit to Hawaii. He send me a text about 15 minutes ago that a passenger has gone overboard. They are currently circling and looking for him/her. What happens when you are still two days out from Hawaii?! Pray for that person!! He just text me again saying the ship is stopped now and drifting. Yikes!

Very sad Many prayers.... Looks bad for the cruise lines and it breaks my heart because anyone that has been on a cruise knows you can't just "fall" overboard. I hope and pray they find him/her and are able to get them the help they will need in time. Prayers....

I guess this is the tranistion cruise that will end in Alaska for the summer season? We will be on the one coming back from Alaska to Hawaii in Sept. Prayers for the person lost.
