A male passenger from the Golden Princess cruise ship has gone missing and it is believed he has gone overboard.

A 61-year-old male passenger from the United States is believed to have gone overboard after being missing when a Princess operated cruise ship was on its way back to its homeport in Sydney, Australia. The man was traveling alone on the Golden Princess and according to multiple local reports, a steward raised the alarm on Wednesday as the vessel was at sea.

The crew immediately searched the entire ship for the missing passenger but with no success, it is believed he went overboard. The crew alerted Australian authorities and CCTV footage had been checked. Golden Princess continued on route to Sydney where it arrived on Thursday.

Golden Princess was sailing a 13-day itinerary which departed Sydney on April 21. The ship’s last port of call was in Lautoka, Fiji and sadly it is not known where the man went overboard. This must be a difficult time for his family and friends, we send out our condolences.

The Princess vessel has already been given the all clear to begin its next cruise which started on May 4. The ship is 110,000 gross tons and can carry over 2,600 guests at double occupancy. Earlier today we also reported on a man overboard from the Disney Dream just off Freeport, Bahamas. Thankfully he was rescued within the hour and given medical attention onboard.
