The Coast Guard has stated that the yet to be named crew member is in a stable condition but an investigation into what happened is ongoing. "Kudos to the Carnival Glory team". "We will be disembarking him when we arrive in Cozumel on Monday, for further treatment and care by Norwegian Cruise Line". Some passengers have stated on social media that the crew member went overboard late at night (around 1:00 A.M.) or early this morning (3-4 A.M.). The crew searched over 1,630 square miles before finding the crew member, a 33 year old male Filipino.

After searching for nearly 24 hours a hotel steward on Carnival Glory spotted the crew member around 21 miles north of Cuba in the water.
