Man jumps off cruise ship in the Bahamas, gets lifetime ban

A 27-year-old Washington man has earned himself a lifetime ban from Royal Caribbean after he made a decision to jump from an eleventh-floor balcony into the ocean while the cruise ship was docked in the Bahamas.

The Instagram video has had more than 78,000 views online since it was was posted last week.

Although Naydev's post doesn't capture anything that happened after the fall, a comment clarifies that he was picked up by a small boat and brought onto the ship by cops to gather his things and leave.

'I could barely walk for 3 days lol, ' he said. He tells Yahoo Lifestyle that he and his friends didn't even consider the consequences prior to the jump, they just captured it in a bid for viral fame. "My idea was this would be a good laugh for my friends and I would just swim back to shore and continue my vacation".

"I just hope I don't inspire anyone to try this, because I don't want to feel responsible for any injuries", Naydev says. All while his three friends filmed him doing it. He paused to smile at the cameraman, who witnessed the leap alongside two other companions, before jumping off the ledge, kicking his feet as he plummeted down.

The video shows him standing on the railing as his friends cheered him on, laughing as Naydev was plunging into the Atlantic Ocean.

Representatives from Royal Caribbean Cruises called the incident "stupid".

'We are exploring legal action, ' the statement claimed.

Naydev told his Instagram followers he was drunk at the time.

Nick said he had been drinking the night before and when he saw his friends on the blacony, he made a decision to jump off.

His friends in the video were also banned, the cruise operator told Yahoo News on January 16.

In the Instagram comments, Naydev talked about the aftermath of the jump saying, "My feet were actually fine.

You are extra dumb", one person wrote.

Still, Naydev, who lives in Vancouver, Wash., said they were forced to make their own way home from the Bahamas afterward.

Royal Caribbean confirmed to Fox News that the cruise line is seeking legal action against the passenger.

He said police spoke with him and his friends, but officers found the situation amusing and didn't press any immediate charges.
