Carnival Magic Cruise ShipNews stations in Houston are reporting that a 39 year old man fell from a balcony during a cruise on the Carnival Magic cruise ship.

The accident happened Tuesday morning while the cruise ship was sailing in the Gulf of Mexico heading toward Mahogany Bay in Roatan. The cruise line states that the passenger was sitting on his cabin balcony railing when he fell onto an open deck area three decks below. He died.

The newspaper accounts do not disclose the time of the incident or whether alcohol was involved.

The Magic is on a seven-day cruise to the Caribbean. It left out of Galveston last Sunday.

    Accidents happen and not every incident aboard a cruise ship is the line’s fault.

    My question is how drunk was this guy. I was on the magic last summer and stand 6’3″ and there is NO WAY you could fall over unless you were either drunk and acting stupid or just acting stupid. This is NOT the cruise lines fault. Blame this one on the passenger.

    Additionally, the balcony rail isn’t meant for sitting. That was very stupid behaviour for such a very grown up man.
