A cruise ship passenger went overboard during a voyage in the Mediterranean Sea and a search for the missing Korean woman was called off without her being found, the cruise operator said yesterday.
Norwegian Cruise Line tweeted a photographed statement that said the woman went into the sea Saturday while the Norwegian Epic was sailing from Cannes, France to Palma de Mallorca, Spain.
Authorities were alerted and a search and rescue operation was launched, but "has now ceased, and sadly the guest has not been found,'' the statement read.
Norwegian Cruise Line did not reply to phone calls and emails requesting additional information.
The Norwegian Epic was in the port of Barcelona yesterday.
