Just read on the other site he was found and brought back to the ship. Amazing work staff!

We are on board and heard the announcement. The seas were a bit rough last night so I’m happy to hear they retrieved the person. Will be anxious to hear more information about this.

Glad this passenger was safely recovered.

 

Speculation on the cause will likely be all over the place.

Who said it was a passenger?

Well the assumption was that since it was a person (not a rescue dog).

 

Of course the only other possibility was a crew member.

Another clown!

 

Or perhaps someone with deep psychological issues who felt the need to end it all and I hope gets much needed help? But no, definitely clown.

I read a post elsewhere by the guy mentioned in the Newsweek article that there was a fight between a newlywed couple, she threw some of his stuff overboard and he jumped in to save it. Supposedly they were put off the ship and banned for life...

Interesting... The article linked a couple posts back says it was a crew member - ah whoever knows?

 

vidsmart - I need to find your books, they sound interesting!

I can't be certain; normally I wouldn't even mention it given I am not certain but since the guy who posted it was also mentioned in the article...

The article you reference said in a previous incident (the January one) it was a crew member.  It says the passenger was rescued in this instance.

Yes that is, or at least was, the other possiblity. You just can't help yourself but to include just a bit of snark, the dog bit,  can you.

Thanks, if it's the fighting newlyweds I'm more interested in knowing what was thrown overboard that was worth trying to save (and wasn't immediately sunk)!

 

I'll look for that!

Ya think? I heard they were put off in Nassau. Supposedly much of his luggage was tossed overboard. If true I sure would love to be a fly on the wall in their room in Nassau (or maybe not)
