A Royal Caribbean passenger was slammed as an “idiot” for risking her life by climbing over a balcony railing aboard the Allure Of The Seas to shoot a selfie during a recent cruise. “Just witnessed this on Allure. What an absolute IDIOT. You cannot fall off of a ship unless you are acting like a moron!” passenger Peter Blosic wrote under a photo of the woman in a blue bathing suit with her hands above her head. He quickly alerted ship staff about the reckless stunt. and the woman was eventually booted off the ship when it docked in Jamaica.
Earlier this week, another 23-year-old Carnival Cruise Line passenger was critically injured after falling over a railing and landing on a deck 16 feet below. Last year, Royal Caribbean banned a guest for life after he jumped from the 11th deck of the Symphony of the Seas. According to a recent global study, 259 people have died while taking selfies between 2011 and 2017.
