Why Royal Caribbean Cruise passenger was banned for life

Allure of the Seas in Malaga

A cruise ship passenger has been banned for life after being photographed standing off the edge of the vessel.

Peter Blosic was on board a Royal Caribbean Cruises ship recently when he noticed a woman had stepped over the balcony railing for a photo.

According to The Sun, he shared the photo with the ship's crew.

"What an absolute idiot. You cannot fall off of a ship unless you are acting like a moron," he wrote on Facebook, according to the paper.

Jonathon Fishman, from Royal Caribbean Cruises, told USA Today the woman's act was dangerous and reckless.

He also confirmed she was "standing on her stateroom balcony railing" for a photo with the help of someone else.

Mr Fishman added the passenger had been "banned for life".

Cruise ships anchored off the shore of Grand Cayman Island, Royal Caribbean Caribbean cruise liner, Mariner of the Sea and Carnival Cruise Liner, turning to return to sea.

"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," a spokesperson for Royal Caribbean told Fox News.

"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."

Passengers are prohibited from "sitting, standing, laying or climbing on, over or across any exterior or interior railings or other protective barriers, or tampering with ship's equipment, facilities or systems", according to Royal Caribbean's guest conduct policy.

Failure to comply can ultimately lead to passengers being removed from the ship when it next docks.

Last week, a 75-year-old man died after he jumped from a Carnival cruise ship, while an Australian man died when he fell from a Royal Caribbean ship in August.

The parents of toddler who fell to her death from eleventh floor of a Royal Caribbean cruise ship blame company for daughter's demise.
