The Maritime Executive reports today that a passenger aboard NORWEGIAN SPIRIT went overboard near New Orleans in the Plaquemines Parish on Sunday night, and was rescued by a NCL rescue boat immediately. In a statement from Norwegian Cruise Line, they stated that the incident took place at approximately 20:00 hours while travelling down the Mississippi River towards the Gulf of Mexico. The 2,018-passenger ship had just embarked on a seven-night voyage bound for the Western Caribbean three hours prior before discovering a passenger had gone overboard.
The overboard male passenger is currently unidentified and NCL did not indicate the cause for the plunge off the vessel, however they did disclose that he was injured in the incident. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com or via LinkedIn at
