The crew immediately launched a life boat in order to search the water around the vessel.

Using lights from the life boat and the liner, rescuers found the passenger and managed to pull her to safety. The woman was taken back to NCL Epic where she was evaluated by the medical staff.

Norwegian Cruise Line announced the woman was stable. Her name was not released.

The ship sailed back to Cape Canaveral early Wednesday where passengers disembarked.

No further information was available.
