Coast Guard Searching for Royal Caribbean Crew Member Who Went Overboard royal-caribbean-logo

A search is underway for a 26-year-old Royal Caribbean crew member who went overboard approximately 40 miles east of Hillsboro Inlet on the coast of Florida.

According to a statement from the Coast Guard, they were alerted by the Majesty of the Seas early Thursday morning that the crew member had gone overboard.

Owen Torres, a Royal Caribbean spokesman, stated in an email that “other crewmembers saw the employee go overboard around 2:30 a.m. as the cruise sailed to Port Everglades at the end of a six-day cruise to the Bahamas.”

Torres also stated that the ship’s captain brought the ship to an immediate halt to begin rescue efforts. Once the Coast Guard took over the search, the cruise resumed its course.
