Watch: Passenger jumps from cruise ship, banned from boat

NASSAU, Bahamas — A 27-year-old cruise line passenger has been banned from the ship after he filmed himself jumping from an 11th level deck.

Nick Naydev posted the video on his Instagram account showing him leaping from the world's largest cruise ship, Royal Caribbean's Symphony of the Seas.

The incident took place last week as the ship was docked in Nassau, Bahamas.

Nick Naydev said he was intoxicated at the time.

"I was still drunk from the previous night," he wrote on his Instagram page. "When I woke up I just decided to jump."

After making the leap Naydev was picked up by a small vessel and brought back to the cruise ship.

Royal Caribbean security officials then banned Naydev and his companions from the cruise liner.

"This was stupid and reckless behavior," Royal Caribbean told USA Today. "He and his companions have been banned from ever sailing with us again,"

Naydev's travel party had to find their own way home from Nassau.
