MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A British passenger on the Royal Caribbean cruise ship the Allure of the Seas is missing after apparently going overboard.
The passenger fell over the railing from his stateroom on the Allure of the Seas as the ship was sailing to Cozumel, Mexico, according to a fellow passenger.
Security camera video on board the ship confirmed the story of the passenger falling off the 11th deck balcony.
According to Royal Caribbean, multiple public announcements were made and a complete search of the ship didn’t locate the guest.
The Allure of the Seas left Sunday on a seven-night cruise from Fort Lauderdale.
The Mexican Navy and Coast Guard, the Allure of the Seas, and a pilot boat are assisting in the search for the passenger.
Royal Caribbean said, “Our Care Team is providing support to the guest’s family and our thoughts and prayers are with them.”
