New Orleans – A 31-year old male passenger aboard the Norweigian Cruise ship jumped overboard on March 11 while sailing near Costa Maya, Mexico. Search and rescue operation began immediately, but the guest has not been found as reported on Saturday.
New Orleans is the homeport for the Breakway ship, which can accommodate nearly 4,000 guests. The ship is en route for another 7-day voyage leaving the port on March 13.
The NCL spokesperson, in his statement, said, “Unfortunately, the guest is still not found, and our prayers and thoughts are with the man’s family and loved ones during this difficult time.”
This is the second such incident since the beginning of this year. After being detained by security for a disturbance at the swimming pool in February, a woman jumped overboard the Carnival Valor ship.
