Man Falls of Royal Caribbean Cruise Ship
It’s the quickest way to end your sailing – falling off a Royal Caribbean cruise ship.
That happened to a man on Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas late Sunday night.
The ship, which departed from Barcelona hours earlier, was diverted for a search and rescue mission after a man went overboard.
They found the man who went overboard and brought him back on the ship.
On Monday, the guest was debarked for his stunt.
We tried contacting Royal Caribbean for a statement, but they did not respond at the broadcast time.
Carnival Paradise Completes 2-Week Dry Dock
Carnival Paradise has completed a two-week drydock in the Bahamas and is now back in service.
Upgrades were made to the adults-only Serenity Deck, where a new central hot tub was added, and the casino was improved.
ADA additions were made to many public areas, along with the new carpeting, and windows were also replaced.
The Carnival Paradise now offers four- to six-night cruises to the Bahamas and the Western Caribbean from its homeport in Tampa.
Paradise was launched in 1998 and is one of the two remaining Fantasy-class ships for Carnival Cruise Line.
