The U.S. Coast Guard states that it is searching this evening for a person who went overboard this evening from Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas which was moored at port (at Pier 3) in Old Juan, Puerto Rico.

Cruceros Puerto Rico initially reported on the incident, and published a number of photographs of the scene of the overboard.

Major newspapers are not stating any details regarding the person who went overboard.

The man reportedly went over the rails from the “10th floor” of the cruise ship.

The ship was chartered for a week long Atlantis cruise from Fort Lauderdale. Eight years ago, a passenger went overboard from the Allure of the Seas during an Atlantis cruise.

The last time that a passenger went overboard from the Oasis of the Seas was nearly four years ago when a guest fell from the Royal Caribbean ship which was sailing in the Caribbean. There was a widely circulated video of the man going overboard.

Four years ago, another cruise passenger from this cruise ship fell overboard as the ship sailed to Cozumel. The Disney Magic, sailing the same route, then rescued the passenger. Royal Caribbean had served the young man over 20 alcoholic drinks in the hours prior to the guest going into the water.

According to cruise expert Dr. Ross Klein, there have been 361 people who have gone overboard from cruise ships since 2000.
