Cruise News Daily's thoughts on things seen and heard on the internet, in the media and around the cruise industry.

Tell us stuff - Do you know something we don't?


Tuesday, October 3, 2006
From the petite roll department: When passengers witnessed the woman jumping over the rail at the aft end of Carnival Conquest Saturday, they immediately reported what they saw, and the bridge, assuming the woman had landed in the water, began following their procedure for a person overboard. That involved slowing the ship and following a turning procedure that would put the ship back to the spot where it was when the person went into the water. With that turn came a normal roll of the ship, and with that, water spilled from the pools both from the roll itself and the inertia. Perhaps with the Crown Princess incident still fresh in their minds, a few passengers reported their estimates of rather large degrees of roll. Conquest's Capt. Marino tells us that it was "decisively less than 5 degrees." He said there weren't even any reports of damages or injuries. (As CND reported earlier, it was quickly discovered the woman had not landed in the water, but instead had died when she landed on a protruding balcony four decks below.) No doubt, as it gets reported by passengers on bulletin boards and to their grandchildren, that 5 degrees will be multiplied many times.
