The ship was returning from a five-day cruise to Mexico that departed New Orleans on February 12 and was due back Thursday morning.
The U.S. Coast Guard has called off the search efforts for the woman.
A company spokesperson said the ship’s command immediately began search and rescue procedures and returned to the area near where the incident occurred and notified the U.S. Coast Guard.
“Carnival’s CARE team is providing support to the guest’s husband who was traveling with her,” the spokesperson said.
