Cruise ship worker rescued near Cuba after 22 hours in sea

A crew member who had fallen overboard from a Norwegian Cruise Line ship was rescued by a Carnival Cruise Line ship over the weekend.

The unidentified 33-year-old went overboard as the Norwegian Cruise Line's Norwegian Getaway sailed back to Miami on Saturday, the cruise line said.

Coast Guard dispatched planes and a cutter that searched more than 1,630 square miles in the Gulf of Mexico.

In a video posted on Carnival's website, the ship's Captain Pero Grubjesic said his ship was "enroute from Miami to Cozumel when several crew members and guests spotted a person floating in the water about 20 miles north of Cuba".

A man who went overboard on the cruise ship Norwegian Getaway was rescued almost 24 hours later by another cruise ship.

Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line, released a statement that reads in part, "This is nothing short of miraculous". She praised the crewmembers who found the man, lauding their "amazing effort to rescue a fellow seafarer". The Coast Guard was alerted and started searching for him.

We're sure there's a great survival story here and at some point it will come out. The Norwegian Getaway also conducted a search before continuing its voyage to Miami.

The Norwegian Getaway was returning to Miami from an eight-day cruise when the worker went overboard Saturday.
