Few details were available about the missing woman, who was reportedly seen falling off the Carnival Triumph on Sunday night.

"Modern systems today can record the person going over the rails and track them in the water via motion detection, infrared and radar technology", he added. Carnival Cruise Line has also stated that all the appropriate authorities have been notified.

According to Gulliksen, the balconies on the ship meet the Cruise Vessel Security and Safety Act standards. The Carnival Triumph travels between New Orleans and Mexico, and was expected to arrive in Cozumel on Monday.
