A lady was eliminated from a cruise ship and banned for life by the cruise firm after she climbed onto her room’s balcony railing to pose for a harmful picture shoot over the ocean.
The incident occurred on board the Royal Caribbean ship Allure of the Seas because it was approaching Labadee, Haiti earlier this week.
The unnamed lady was noticed by a fellow passenger, Peter Blosic, who alerted the crew.
“While on my balcony, I saw the woman climb on her railing. It happened so quickly. Not knowing what her intentions were, I alerted the crew. If I said nothing, and she was going to jump, that would be horrible,” he informed CNN.
Blosic later posted an image of the girl carrying a blue bathing go well with with arms over her head on social media.
The ship’s crew later tracked down the girl and eliminated her when the ship docked in Falmouth, Jamaica, Blosic stated.
A Royal Caribbean spokesperson confirmed the incident, telling CNN in an announcement:
“Earlier this week on the Allure of the Seas a guest was observed recklessly and dangerously posing for a photo by standing on her stateroom balcony railing with the help of her companion. Security was notified and the guests were later debarked in Falmouth, Jamaica as a result of their actions and are now banned for life from sailing with Royal Caribbean.”
On its web site, Royal Caribbean explains that “sitting, standing, laying or climbing on, over or across any exterior or interior railings or other protective barriers” will not be permitted, for visitors’ personal security.
