Breeze passenger reported via Facebook not too long ago that there was a man overboard as the ship sailed towards Jamaica. The ship stopped and had to turn around. The passenger just reported on Facebook that the Captain just announced life boat has rescued him and is alive! First a fire and now this! At least both stories have a happy ending!

Yes, a friend is on the cruise and has the internet package. She posted on FB that the announcement was made at dinner and when they were done, they got out just in time to see him being picked up.

The latest...
Sept. 7, 2015 -- At approximately 6.50pm US eastern time this evening, a male guest age 46, was witnessed jumping overboard from the Carnival Breeze while the ship was located north of Cuba. The ship's command promptly began search and rescue activities and the guest was quickly rescued. He is presently being evaluated at the ship's medical center. US Coast Guard has been notified, per standard protocol. Carnival Breeze is now proceeding to Montego Bay, Jamaica, its next scheduled port of call. The ship is based year-round in Miami.

Since he is "alive" I think Carnival should send him a bill for the cost of the rescue as well as a $25 per passenger credit for wasting everyone's time.

On another note Carnival just lowered their number of drinks from 15 to 12 on the Cheers Program, one per hour, in an effort to avoid future drunken jumpers.

Was he trying to swim to Cuba?

Do we know for sure that this passenger was drunk and intoxicated? Perhaps he was just stupid, or was dared to, or perhaps he is mentally depressed. Many more reasons that the Cheers Program that may have led to this act.

It's all part of doing business. Constantly putting out fires. No matter what business you are in. Express Jet has to deal with an idiot employee that won't serve drinks because it's against her religion. Town in Kentucky has to deal with another rummy that won't issue a marriage license due to same lame excuse. Machines break down at factories all the time. A ship is similar, just a large machine. No matter if you maintain it meticulously stuff breaks then u fix it.

I'm sure the real reason they lowered the drinks to 12 is to make more money.

It still says 15 on the FAQ...regardless, with the price increase, it isn't worth it for me or for anyone I know. I drink a lot on a cruise ship and this still isn't a value for me.

Sorry..I meant from the original price. I purchased it when it first came out and the price has increased since then. Even at the original price, I barely saved money.

According to passengers onboard the Breeze, on Facebook, and a rescue video, the man was drunk at 8am, walking in & out of the pool fully dressed with regular clothes on. Security took him to his cabin go to sleep. Hours later he jumped overboard.

To find this info & rescue video, it can be found on Facebook or via a Google search.

Bottom line is...... Alcohol was the culprit.
