    US man overboard off Sydney-bound cruise ship.

    An American man is believed to have fallen overboard from a cruise ship which arrived in Sydney this week.
    A steward aboard the Golden Princess liner raised concerns about the 61-year-old's whereabouts on Wednesday after he joined the South Pacific cruise in Noumea.
    NSW Police and the Australian Maritime Safety Authority were alerted after a thorough search failed to find the missing passenger, a Princess Cruises spokesman told AAP on Friday.


    "Having ruled out other possibilities, this is being treated as a man overboard incident," he said in a statement.
    "Our thoughts and prayers are with the guest's family in America with whom we have communicated directly since he was reported missing."

    He's probably long 'gone' by now .

    I wish there was some way to find out the circumstances, though. Suicide? Accident? Why? How?

    Right, ITA. I can only imagine how frustrating it is for all involved to not really know why/how/what actually happened.
