Home Cruise Safely What happens when someone falls off a cruise ship?

The only thing harder than falling off a cruise ship is surviving the fall. But it does happen.

It happened in January when a 22-year-old passenger on Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas went overboard off the coast of Mexico. After passengers and crew on a passing ship, the Disney Cruise Lines Magic, heard his cries for help, a lifeboat was deployed and the man was miraculously saved.

According to CruiseJunkie.com, which tracks incidents at sea, there were 22 man-overboard (“MOB” in cruise line parlance) incidents last year. When you consider that 22.1 million people took a cruise vacation last year, that number is literally one in a million.
