Company Issues Lifetime Ban After Washington State Man Jumps From Cruise Ship

Royal Caribbean International says it has issued a lifelong ban on a man who jumped on a cruise ship in the Bahamas.

The Sun Sentinel reports that Nick Naydev posted the video on Instagram last week showing him standing on the balcony of the Symphony of the Seas and jumping off.

In the comments section, the man from Vancouver, Washington, estimated that he jumped from the 11-story deck, more than 30 feet above the surface of the water.

Naydev says he and his friends were expelled from the ship and had to fly back to Miami. He says he was sore for several days after the jump, but did not report any serious injuries.

A Royal Caribbean spokesman called the incident extremely dangerous and confirmed the ban lifelong. The company says it is also exploring legal action.
