MARITIME ACCIDENT: Passenger Overboard Princess Cruises Presumed Dead

By Our Correspondent

A passenger overboard incident occurred aboard Princess Cruises’ “EMERALD PRINCESS” on August 11, 2023, according to FleetMon.

It stated: “Kenneth Schwalbe, a 59-year-old from California, is currently presumed to be deceased. This tragic event represents the third occurrence of a person going overboard within 30 days.

“Kenneth Schwalbe was last seen on the ship on August 10th at 8:30 PM. Despite the efforts of crew members who thoroughly searched the cruise ship, his whereabouts could not be determined, leading to the official reporting of him as missing the following morning.

“Upon receiving the missing person report, the US Coast Guard and Hawaiian Authorities initiated a search operation along the North Coast. Surveillance footage revealed that Kenneth Schwalbe fell from the ship’s “deck 9” at 4:18 AM on Friday, August 11th. Deck 9, also known as the Dolphin Deck, is an exposed area exclusively accessible to passengers with adjoining suites.

“The incident occurred during the ship’s 16-night voyage to Hawaii. Kenneth Schwalbe reportedly went overboard approximately 8 miles off the coast of Hilo, Hawaii. No additional information has been released regarding his travel companions or the circumstances surrounding his fall.”
