He jumped from about 110-120 feet high. He and his friends "didn't care about the consequences from the cruise line -- they just wanted to make a video of it and make it go viral."


Yay social media.

I'm shocked he didn't drown. I had a balcony room when I went on a cruise, and I remember looking at those ocean waves and thinking that if I fell overboard, I would probably drown instantly (or very shortly thereafter).

If he did it near where someone had purged from norovirus, he would go viral, alright.

Stupid act and stunt but it’s his body and life which he has a right to decide about. Luckily they were docked and the cruise ship passengers weren’t delayed by a search and rescue or recovery and the ship didn’t waste fuel sending out the emergency launch.

of course it is his body and his right. That doesn't mean people are not going to comment on it or be shocked that anyone could be so stupid!!!!

TOTAL MORON!!

I saw this on the news last night and couldn't believe it! I was on my honeymoon cruise (17yrs ago) and someone who was drunk from just doing a "booze cruise" excursion climbed up onto her balcony (11th floor) and slipped off. She didn't hit the water though, she hit the lower deck. This happened right before we were leaving the port so local authorities had to investigate because she died. Early 20's. That was on RCCL. Terrible!

Please expand hound this guy’s action is on RCCL? There are 2,000 - 4,000 passengers on a cruise at any given time. How can they be responsible for every passenger’s actions?

I would suggest 100% of the onus be on this criminal and his posse of friends.

Where was the ship when this happened? They had to fly home, so it must have been at one of the islands.

If he had killed himself, he would have qualified for a Darwin award.
