Professor Ross Klein’s Cruise Junkie web site contains an account of a passenger jumping overboard from Celebrity Solstice last Friday:
From a reader: The story on the cruise that I was on goes like this: On early Friday morning around 1:30 am a person fell overboard from the 5th floor. It took them about an hour to locate and rescue the person who was alive (amazing). He was fighting and very belligerent when he was rescued. They put the person in handcuffs and he was taking off the ship in the next port of sail which was Roatan Honduras. The gentleman of approximately 65 years of age had an argument with his wife at an 80’s party being held in the Sky Lounge near the bow. At about 1:30 am on deck 5 starboard he removed most of his clothing and dove off the deck. Fast acting crew members threw a flashing buoy overboard immediately to mark his location and the man-overboard call was made.
The Captain was summoned and many of us heard the code "Oscar, Oscar" Apparently 2-zodiacs were launched the second after some issues with the first …. of this I am not certain. Upon reaching the very lucking gentleman he did not wish to be rescued and when pulled on board the zodiac became belligerent and hence was cuffed. We were told he was removed from the ship in Roatan. Yesterday in the afternoon, on our last day at sea, the Captain came on the loudspeaker and thanked his hard working crew for their efforts for the rescue.
Last November, a passenger disappeared from this cruise ship. You can read about the prior incident: Passenger Reported Overboard from Celebrity’s Solstice Cruise Ship
