Man Overboard! Atlantis Gay Cruise Loses a Passenger Over the Rails
The ship’s captain confirmed the incident to passengers and said all rescue attempts were being made.
An emergency assembly was called so passengers could be counted.
In a statement released Friday, Royal Caribbean said a passenger witnessed another passenger going overboard at about 7 a.m. According to the statement, footage from the ship’s closed-circuit camera showed the passenger, a 30-year-old British man, going over the balcony railing in his stateroom.
Finding no body after searching for several hours, the ship continued on its way to Cozumel, Mexico.
Several hours? A man falls off the side of your ship and you give him several hours before moving on? They searched for survivors for three days when that ship sank in the Mediterranean last month.
Atlantis and Royal Caribbean: Sail at your own risk, y’all. Yikes.
