Several guests aboard the Carnival Spirit report that a young man went overboard from the cruise ship as it headed toward Noumea, New Caledonia.
A guest sent the following email:
“Person reported overboard near coast of Noumea 1 AM cruise ship had to return to middle of the ocean to search at 4 AM. no-one found. 25 year old middle eastern man. Surveillance of man falling.”
The man was reported overboard early Friday morning. The Carnival Spirit departed from Sydney, Australia on March 27th and was scheduled to arrive in Noumea, New Caledonia on March 30th.
What a sad day- a 25 year old boy went overboard last night and now we are heading 9 hours back on our cruise ship to the location we were when he went over – I pray there’s a miracle and he’s still alive but if not, I pray for his family that we find him 🙏🏽
