The U.S. Coast Guard is searching for a passenger overboard the Carnival Victory cruise ship near Cuba in the Caribbean.

A search is underway for a 23-year-old man who is overboard the Carnival cruise ship. Coast Guard News reports that the man was overboard when the ship was 33 miles northwest of Pinar Del Rio, Cuba. The man apparently went overboard from deck 8 at around 3:00 AM on Wednesday, March 22.

A search by the ship’s crew was immediately launched and the U.S. Coast Guard was notified. At the moment the Carnival Victory and the Coast Guard are currently still searching for the missing passenger. An air and sea search is happening which includes the Ocean Sentry airplane and Coast Guard Cutter Charles Sexton.

Carnival Victory is a 101,500 gross ton vessel and was sailing towards Cozumel, Mexico at the time. The ship departed PortMiami on March 20 and is scheduled to call in Cozumel today, this could be delayed due to the on-going search. Carnival Victory is set to arrive back at its homeport on March 24.
