On Tuesday evening, a man overboard was reported on Royal Caribbean’s Wonder of the Seas cruise ship as it was sailing towards Mexico. Passengers on board heard an Oscar call, indicating a man overboard situation, and the ship immediately turned south and launched a rescue operation. However, the search yielded no results and the ship was rerouted to Grand Cayman due to a medical emergency on board. The Wonder of the Seas had already changed its itinerary due to Hurricane Idalia.

This incident marks the latest in a series of man-overboard situations on cruise ships this year. Since the start of the year, there have been over a dozen cases of people going overboard on cruise ships. In July, passengers from both Carnival Cruise Line and Royal Caribbean ships went overboard, and earlier this month, someone jumped off the Emerald Princess. Since 2000, there have been a total of 60 passengers going overboard on Royal Caribbean ships.

The Wonder of the Seas, the world’s largest cruise ship, is currently sailing seven-night cruises from Port Canaveral, Florida and is expected to return on Sunday morning.
