It’s Another Slap in the Face for Cruises in the UK

The cruise industry has received another setback after the UK Foreign Office updated its advisory against cruise ship travel for all British nationals.

A woman has been rescued after going overboard a cruise ship while in the Pacific Ocean and waits almost one hour to be saved.

For once a good outcome has come from an overboard situation. A female passenger was overboard the Sun Princess cruise ship on Friday afternoon in the Pacific Ocean. According to Stuff the woman fell from the vessel sometime just after 4 PM and an immediate operation was launched to save her. It isn’t exactly clear how the woman went overboard.

Once it was known the woman was overboard two life rings were thrown into the ocean which she was unable to swim to. The Princess Cruises operated ship turned around and launched a boat to rescue her. What’s amazing about this is that she waited in the sea for almost one hour before being pulled into a small rescue boat by crew members.

Video footage of the rescue was posted online by Will Martin, a crew member who is working onboard as an entertainer:

Sun Princess was sailing from its home port of Brisbane, Australia to Noumea, New Caledonia in the Pacific ocean at the time. The 77,400 gross ton vessel is currently sailing an 11-day itinerary which scheduled to arrived back In Brisbane on February 26.
