An explanation concerning this being a "private matter" is posted on cruise junkie. The unconfirmed post indicates that this MOB situation was a voluntary, intentional act by the CM who is missing. If true, it would explain why this is less "newsworthy" and more "private."

I understand that the Wonder, like most modern cruise ships, is equipped with 24/7 cameras on the outer decks to monitor MOB situations. DCL may very well be reviewing those recordings for confirmation.

Sad, if true, no matter what the circumstances.

A missing person should never be a 'private matter'. Insane! It sounds like Disney is trying to cover its tracks and hide the fact from folks that they are just like any other cruise line.

I am sure DCL has this under control. I will respect however they cover the matter as their crew is like family. I am sure everything will turn out just fine. Do companies "cover-up" to protect their company name? Oh For Sure; but I am sure DCL will do everything appropiate to see after their own.

So prayers to her family and friends; no matter what the situation; as them worrying is enough to pray for.

Yes many of us feel AS IF we know the CM personally (the same way people feel they know their medical provider), but know the people who really know her will take care of the situation.

PIXIE DUST to all of the Crew and Family. Bahumbug to the

This is heartbreaking to read. I still consider the Wonder my home ship, even though she's in CA now and I do love the Dream. My thoughts and prayers are with the CM, family, friends and fellow crew members.

It may sound odd, but even crew can fall overboard unintentionally. My neighbor is a cruise director for another line, and a crew member once fell overboard accidentally; can't remember the exact circumstances, but she was doing something careless and fell. Thank God it was discovered quickly and the ship turned around, searched and found her. She said the only thing that kept her treading water was seeing them turn and knowing they were coming back for her.

I pray that this situation has an equally positive outcome, and if not, then I pray for comfort for all involved.

I just contacted CNN about this. It's ridiculous to cover something like this up. I can't just sit back and do nothing.

EDIT: They have done reports on people missing from cruise ships before. If they don't report on this I'm fine with that, but I at least tried to get the news out rather than just harp about it on the net.

I agree in respecting their privacy, however I think "most" of us are just offering our warm thoughts and prayers that a positive outcome will be had! We've all cruised DCL and we create a bond with many of the CMs the short time we're on the ship together so it hits us all personally! Prayers are with the CMs of the Wonder!

If this is in fact a suicide, I agree it should be a private matter.

However, until that is determined I think it is a matter for the public to know about - was it foul play? A kidnapping? etc. All of those are things I would like to me aware of before I go on vacation.

Seriously?! I mean, I supported the idea that we can all offer prayers. I even agree that, as people who cruise DCL (and many of us have strong feelings for the crew and ships), it isn't wrong to have some discussion about the incident, but I do not agree with this at all.

If this was a guest, would anyone here be saying that we shouldn't talk about it? What makes this different? We have many threads here about things that have (or may have) happened to guests.

Megan_J - I'm curious as to what, exactly, you told CNN? That you read a rumour on a message board about a missing person on a boat and you think that there is some major cover up? What is there to tell them?

Usually the cruise critic site comes up with the stuff very quickly and I went to the disney forum area and nothing has not been mentioned. My prayers go out to the family and hope they would find the person. These things are always so sad.

I gave them the link to this thread. Cruise lines have a long history of downplaying missing people, injured people,etc...on board their ships. If something involving foul play did happen to this girl then the news needs to get out. If it turns out to be nothing then what is the harm done?

I'm sure if it was your child, and it turned out to be "nothing," you'd love having CNN broadcasting it and probably calling you for a comment.
