Australian newspapers are reporting that a passenger has disappeared from the Golden Princess operated by Princess Crises.
A 61 year old U.S. citizen apparently went overboard from the cruise ship on Wednesday, according to these newspapers. The Golden Princess later docked in Sydney, on Thursday. The cruise line searched for the man on the ship after the crew became concerned that he might have gone overboard.
A reader commented (below) that the man was "reported missing by his cabin steward at around 9pm on Wednesday night 3rd May. However the Captain announced to all passengers onboard that he was last sighted on Monday 1st May. Monday was the first of 3 sea days back to Sydney from Latouka Fiji."
The ship is now sailing en route to Brisbane and Papua New Guinea.
Cruise expert Dr. Ross Klein has tallied 296 people overboard in the last 17 years.
