While 28 miles northwest of Pinar del Rio, Norwegian Getaway notified the US Coast Guard at about 3:20pm on Saturday that a 33-year-old male crew member had been seen going overboard. On Sunday, crew and guests aboard another cruise ship, the Carnival Glory, saw him in the water and saved him. The steward told the Glory's bridge officers, who reduced the ship's speed, reversed course and lowered a lifeboat to save the man. The large cruise ship is staffed with more than 1,500 crew members and can accommodate almost 4,000 guests. Top agents vie for coveted hosted positions to leverage valuable supplier content that will help improve personal growth and increase overall sales.
"This is nothing short of miraculous", said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.
"Kudos to the Carnival Glory team for this awesome effort to rescue a fellow seafarer", Ms Duffy said.
Carnival Glory was actually at the start of a 7-night western Caribbean cruise which is the same as the Norwegian Getaway, the vessel which the crew member was overboard from.
The Getaway, which left Miami June 24 for an eight-day cruise, returned to Miami Sunday.
The Carnival ship had been on its way to Cozumel, Mexico, at the time. Coast Guard assets on Saturday and Sunday searched more than 1,630 square miles for the man. He was rescued by the Carnival Glory cruise ship, which is operated by the Carnival Cruise Line.
