24 People on Distressed Boat Rescued by Carnival Cruise Ship

A Carnival cruise ship came to the rescue of 24 people just off the coast of Florida on Saturday after a small boat was in distress and was taking on water.

On Thursday evening a female passenger went overboard a Norwegian Cruise Line ship during a Mad Decent Block Party chartered cruise.

The woman apparently went overboard the Norwegian Pearl intentionally at around 7 pm on Thursday evening. The cruise ship was around 22 nautical miles off the coast of Cuba at the time the passenger went overboard. The Mad Decent music festival is hosting the cruise and features musical acts and performances for the entire voyage.

NCL sent Cruise Hive the following statement:

On Thursday, November 12 during a chartered cruise on Norwegian Pearl, a female guest was observed intentionally going overboard while the ship was sailing the Yucatan Channel.  The ship’s crew immediately initiated rescue measures, including deploying three rescue boats and notifying the Coast Guard and other relevant authorities. The search for the guest is ongoing. Both the ship and charter company teams are providing support to the family and all impacted guests during this difficult time.

The U.S Coast Guard was notified of an overboard passenger by the ship’s crew and are currently searching the area. The Norwegian Pearl departed Miami, Florida on November 11 and the only port of call is Cozumel, Mexico. The 91,700 gross ton vessel is scheduled to arrive back at its home port in Miami on November 15. The ship can carry 2,466 passengers at double occupancy.

Our thoughts are with the family and loved ones of the unnamed passenger throughout this difficult time.
