On August 7, 2019, a 45-year-old male passenger of Chinese origin has intentionally jumped overboard from Majestic Princess while the liner was en-route from Shanghai China to Japan, approximately 110 kilometers (70 miles) from Korea's Jeju Island.
The man jumped into the sea at around 7:50 p.m. as the incident was captured on CCTV cameras. His wife was the first who alerted ship's security staff about the overboard.
The cruise ship immediately changed its course and started a search and rescue operation with 2 of its lifeboats. The operation (coordinated by the Japanese and South Korean coast guard agencies) was soon joined by 5 other vessels in the area. The man's body was not found.
