BREAKING: Reports of Man Going OverBoard on Disney Dream Cruise Ship

We are following a developing story of an adult male guest who reportedly went overboard the Disney Dream cruise ship this evening. Sources are saying that multiple cruise passengers reported that the Disney Dream began slowing down and circling. They then saw a coast guard airplane fly overhead. It was stated that the recovery took less than an hour and the man survived the jump from the 7th deck and was transported to the ship’s medical center. Compliments were given to the Disney Dream crew members for their efficiency and competency during the emergency. Further reports state that he did not suffer any broken bones, only a cracked tailbone, and is expected to make a full recovery.

The Disney Dream is currently finishing up a 4 night itinerary through the Bahamas. Today was their last full day onboard and was an “At Sea” day. They are scheduled to dock back at Port Canaveral in the morning.

Although this incident has not been confirmed by Disney we do see that the Disney Dream did in fact make a loop just off the coast of Freeport which would support these claims.

The Disney Cruise Line is well known for their impeccable safety record and standards. Their outside railings (facing the ocean) are 42 1/2 inches high (about waist/chest high on an adult) and covered with plexiglass. It would be extremely difficult, although not impossible, for an adult to accidentally fall overboard.

Our thoughts and prayers are with this man and his family.

  1. He actually jumped from the 7th deck. He is doing well, no broken bones. He has a cracked tailbone, but it expected to make a full recovery. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

  2. Any update on the condition of this man? We were on that ship and walked Deck 4 after dinner and saw the crew putting the rescue boat back in its place on ship along with other crew members in bright yellow suits. The time was about 7:45 pm on Thursday, May 4th.
