Another Carnival Cruise Passenger Goes Overboard
Carnival Holiday Update, 10:10 a.m. EDT: Carnival has issued a statement saying the woman was suspected to have gone overboard at approximately 11 p.m. CDT Monday, after another guest reported hearing a splash sound in the water to a crewmember. A cabin-by-cabin check was conducted, which confirmed a missing female guest.

The search for the missing individual is ongoing.

(9:40 a.m. EDT) -- One day after a Carnival Imagination passenger was rescued after falling overboard near Tampa, another cruise traveler has gone missing. The Associated Press is reporting this morning that the Coast Guard is searching the Gulf of Mexico for a woman who reportedly went overboard from Mobile-based Carnival Holiday.

The Coast Guard told the AP that the passenger, a 50-year-old woman, was reported overboard by the Carnival Cruise Lines ship at 12:04 a.m. Tuesday. According to CNN, crewmembers heard a loud splash and began search procedures. At the time, the ship was located 75 miles southwest of Pensacola, Florida.

The ship is currently sailing a five-night Western Caribbean cruise that departed yesterday from Mobile. Today is a scheduled sea day. The cruise will end Saturday in Mobile after calls on Cozumel and Playa del Carmen.

We'll keep you posted.
