Cruise Hive has received a statement from Carnival Cruise Line which does state the 32-year-old female guest jumped from the ship. You can read the full statement below:

Early this morning, a 32-year-old female guest was witnessed jumping overboard from the cruise ship Carnival Ecstasy. The ship was approximately 15 miles off the coast of Grand Bahama island. Man overboard procedures were initiated immediately along with notification to the U.S. Coast Guard. Cruise ship personnel have been participating in the search and rescue operation throughout the morning. At  9 a.m., USCG released the cruise ship to resume its course for Charleston. USCG remains on site to continue the search. The company’s CareTeam is providing assistance and support to the missing guest’s family on board and our thoughts and prayers are with her and family and loved ones during this difficult time.

The U.S Coast Guard is searching for a cruise passenger who apparently fell overboard the Carnival Ecstasy today (Sep 7). The female passenger fell overboard approximately 27 miles southwest of Freeport, Bahamas.

The 32-year-old female passenger was according to the Coast Guard seen wearing a white dress with pink floral as she fell from the Fantasy class ship. The woman was seen falling at around 2:30 this morning as the Carnival Ecstasy was sailing in the Bahamas.

The Carnival Ecstasy is a Fantasy class ship operated by Carnival Cruise Line. The 70,500 gross ton ship is currently on a 6-day cruise which departed Charleston, South Carolina on September 3. The ship was sailing back towards its home port the time the woman fell overboard and had departed Nassau, Bahamas yesterday.

Coast Guard crews are searching the area with several assets including a helicopter, an Ocean Sentry airplane, and the Coast Guard Cutter Gannet. Cruise Hive will be updating this post as updates are released.
