VIDEO: Vancouver Man BANNED from Cruise Line After Jumping Ship

A 27-year-old man from Vancouver, Wash., is finding Internet fame this week with a video of himself jumping from a Royal Caribbean cruise ship.  

He's also now banned for life from the line and could face legal consequences.   "This was stupid and reckless behavior, and he and his companions have been banned from ever sailing with us again," Royal Caribbean said in a statement sent to USA TODAY. "We are exploring legal action."

 The jumper, Nick Naydev, posted video Friday on Instagram that shows him leaping from the 11th deck of Royal Caribbean's Symphony of the Seas – the world's largest cruise ship. 

The incident took place last week when the vessel was docked in Nassau, Bahamas.  The video has since gone viral, racking up thousands of views.
