Briton falls off cruise ship on way to Mexico
A British passenger on the world's biggest cruise ship is missing after falling overboard in the dark as the vessel approached Mexico.
The 30-year-old man was seen falling over the railings by another passenger on the Allure of the Seas, the Royal Caribbean International cruise line said.
He could also be seen falling over in footage from an onboard video camera which also recorded the location of the ship at the time. "Allure of the Seas, along with Mexican coastguard, Mexican navy and the pilot boat, conducted a search for the missing guest," the cruise company said in a statement.
The ship was sailing on a seven-night Caribbean itinerary starting at Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on 29 January, and calling at Haiti, Costa Maya and Cozumel, in Mexico. A spokeswoman for Royal Caribbean International said the ship had been fully chartered by Atlantis Events, whose website declares it is "the largest company in the world dedicated to creating unique vacations for the gay and lesbian community".
