A cruise ship worker who was thought to have treaded water for 22 hours after going overboard is recuperating after being picked up by another passing cruise ship, authorities say.

In a video posted on Carnival's website, the ship's Captain Pero Grubjesic said his ship was "enroute from Miami to Cozumel when several crew members and guests spotted a person floating in the water about 20 miles north of Cuba".

The crew member is being treated on board the Carnival ship, which is now heading to Cozumel, Mexico. Top agents vie for coveted hosted positions to leverage valuable supplier content that will help improve personal growth and increase overall sales. The Miami-based cruise line says it's "extremely grateful" to the crew of the Carnival Glory for finding the crew member.

"We are so happy to know that the individual is safe and will soon be reunited with friends and family", a spokesperson for Norwegian Cruise Line tells Travel Agent.

In a story July 2 about a cruise ship crew member who went overboard, The Associated Press reported erroneously that the Coast Guard suspended the search for a missing cruise ship crew member.

The Getaway, which left Miami June 24 for an eight-day cruise, returned to Miami on Sunday.

The 33-year-old Filipino man was in stable condition, the Coast Guard said.

"We did do a search pattern for about two hours, and then they turned back around 9 p.m.", said Schellenberger. The Norwegian crew member was found on the final day of the cruise.
