From a reader: RE: Carnival Glory, departing Miami, Florida 2015-03-07 16:00. Sometime in the early morning hours of 2015-03-08, en route to Half Moon Cay, Bahamas the passenger went overboard.
Carnival verified passenger was onboard and reviewed ships security tapes (according to passenger). Passenger indicates they DID NOT make port call at Half Moon Cay. They continued to do “circles” along with another Carnival ship, looking for passenger. They are currently en route to St. Thomas, USVI.
The Carnival verification we could find comes from a Twitter posting in regards to a Facebook posting.
Our thoughts go out to this passenger and his family. Hopefully there will be a quick conclusion to this story.
