This report is coming live from the Disney Dream. An unknown Carnival Cruise Line ship and Coast Guard helicopters are currently next to the Dream helping with a search for a man overboard from the Monarch of the Seas. On schedule today for the Dream is a day at sea, but overnight, guests began noticing unusual movement from the ship. Guests later learned that the ship had docked at Nassau overnight, but weren't sure why. An officer from the Dream made an announcement overhead at 9:00 am alerting guests of the situation. This is the first official notification passengers have received; if any news-worthy updates are given, this story will be updated.

Update at 9:35 am:
It was an eventful night for the Dream; the docking at Nassau was actually due to a sick guest. A passenger was diagnosed with pneumonia and was taken to Nassau Hospital at 5:30 this morning.
According to Captain Gus, the Disney Dream and other cruise ships have been released from search duty at this time, but will continue searching for another half hour. Search efforts have been turned over to the Bahamian Search and Rescue, with assistance from the Coast Guard.
