Confirmed by Norwegian Cruise Line, the vessel was en route again to Miami from the Bahamas when the incident occurred.

The line issued an announcement saying. “On the early morning of Friday, Nov. 3, 2023, Norwegian Pearl was notified that a 41-year-old male guest went overboard while the ship was sailing near the Bahamas on its way to Miami.”

Following the search sample, the visitor went overboard roughly 177 miles southeast east of Miami.

The climate within the space on early Friday morning was uneven, with wind gusts as much as 30 knots. The ship looked for 9 hours earlier than being launched by the U.S. Coast Guard.

The assertion went on to learn, “The authorities have been notified and the United States Coast Guard search and rescue operation is underway. The investigation is ongoing, and we will share updates as appropriate. Our thoughts and prayers are with his loved ones during this difficult time.”

Cruise co-host speaks on occasion

One of the cruise co-hosts, Riki Rachtman, former host of MTV Hangbanger Ball TV present, spoke on the incident throughout a Facebook Live on Saturday morning.

“Everybody was devastated when we were woken up by the calls, and then they spent nine hours trying to find this person with the Coast Guard. And I get sentimental when I say this, but at about nine o’clock in the morning, they made the announcement that the search was called off. And when that happened, it was devastating and it hurt everybody when you walked around the ship.”
