We have been contacted by several different individuals today inquiring into the facts and circumstances surrounding a crewmember going overboard from the Monarch of the Seas cruise ship.
We are informed that the overboard involved a crewmember from India. No other information is known at this time. The cruise ship is in Nassau today and was in CoCo Cay yesterday. There are no news outlets reporting on this incident so far.
Royal Caribbean / Celebrity cruise ships have seen the most overboards over the course of the last 2 years.
On December 27, 2011 we reported on a Celebrity crewmember's disappearance - Celebrity Crewmember Missing From Summit Cruise Ship. Here are other recent stories:
The last two articles involve a wife of an Indian crewmember going overboard from the Monarch of the Seas.
The last time the Monarch of the Seas was in the news was when it failed a CDC inspection in November - Dirty Dishes & Fruit Flies Flourish on Royal Caribbean's Oldest Cruise Ship

January 12, 2012 Update:
DIS, the "Internet's largest unofficial on-line guide to Disney Cruises," contains the following information:
This report is coming live from the Disney Dream. An unknown Carnival Cruise Line ship and Coast Guard helicopters are currently next to the Dream helping with a search for a man overboard from the Monarch of the Seas. On schedule today for the Dream is a day at sea, but overnight, guests began noticing unusual movement from the ship. Guests later learned that the ship had docked at Nassau overnight, but weren't sure why. An officer from the Dream made an announcement overhead at 9:00 am alerting guests of the situation. This is the first official notification passengers have received; if any news-worthy updates are given, this story will be updated.
