A 39 year old man has fallen overboard the cruise ship Norwegian Sky at approximately 3 am, Saturday April 18, 2009. The man was a passenger on the Norwegian Sky sailing from Miami, when he went overboard about 60 miles north of Nassau, Bahamas. The Norwegian Sky departed Miami for a three day cruise and was traveling to its first port of call in Nassau when the incident occurred.

Several crews, from the Royal Bahamas Defense Force, the Royal Caribbean Monarch of the Seas cruise ship, Norwegian Pearl cruise ship and Disney cruise line small-boat crews, are assisting the Coast Guard with the search.

Norwegian Sky crew members contacted the Coast Guard for assistance from the Seventh Coast Guard District based out of Miami.

Thus far the same of the passenger is being withheld pending the notification of the nest of kin.

  1. I was a passanger on board the Sky. The Captain and crew were very professional and concerned. Other cruise ships changed there schedule to assist in the search. Our prayers go the family of the man.

  2. We were also on that same cruise. The captain made constant announcements keeping everyone informed and he did seem very concerned. They also had a boat out there with sonar on it, to help.

  3. I to was a passenger on board the Sky. I would have to agree that the incident was handled professionally. On Saturday Morning I awoke to my 4 year old son out on our balcony standing on the table. That entire ship has no child safety locks on any of the balcony doors with the exception of the room we had only after 10 hours of fighting with them to put one on our door.

  4. I was on the Norwegian Pearl. We looked for this guy until about 1 p.m. I felt bad for the guy because that’s a horrible way to go. Peace be with him and his family.
