Default More passengers over board.

Those of us with a long history here at Cruisemates, remember the days when someone jumping over board, was huge news...sadly, yesterday on the Independence of the Seas, and today on the QM2, two people went over board.There have been 283 over boards since 2000.

It seems in my opinion, death by cruise ship is an easier (in their mind) way to end ones life, than some other options. Few have survived, which is a testimony to the ship and crew being able search and find the jumper.

I remember on my Magic cruise there was an announcement of a possible jumper, only to have the person turn up in the casino..!

Then heartache for the families is beyond measure..more so during the holiday...prayers to the families...
