Carnival Legend Passenger Dies after he Fell and Hit the lifeboat on Deck 4

A guest died aboard the Carnival Legend, on Monday, December 20, while the cruise ship was sailing an 8-day Eastern Caribbean Christmas cruise. Several passengers reported that a man overboard signal was sounded on the public address system saying that from the deck cams there were lights in the water and that the crew even lowered a lifeboat.

Carnival Cruise Line said that while there was a man overboard alert, this was not an overboard incident, reports CBS Baltimore.

Following the tragic event Carnival released a statement;

"We are sad to share that we had an incident last night. We are supporting the guest's family and others who witnessed the situation. With respect for the privacy of all involved, we will not say any more, but ask that you keep the family in your thoughts and prayers."

A source aboard the Carnival Legend told that the man fell down from his balcony on Deck 8, and hit the lifeboat on Deck 4. This happened at around 00:30 local time.

The cruise ship, which embarked on its journey from Baltimore, Maryland, with stops in Nassau, Princess Cays and Grand Turk has made an unscheduled stop in Freeport, according to ship tracking websites. The reasons for the stop are unknown however some guests said that the man’s body was taken off the ship.

“We have been in Freeport since around 5:30 am. We are fueling now but not one of our stops. I guess the man's body was taken off and from what we hearing taking off his girlfriend,” a guest reported on social media.
