Passenger caught on ocean side of Allure balcony .... 10/13 sailing

Recommended Posts

If the unthinkable happened to this woman, her family would hire a lawyer to ask, "Why would there be an unsecured area on a balcony where people can fall off?" Why would you have the danger without any warning, sign, or notice?”  (I'm looking at you, Mr Winkleman)

Then people who know nothing about cruising would rant all over social media demanding Royal to put up barriers on open decks and balconies!

The family would post pictures of her hanging from monkey bars saying how much she loved doing it.

I can only wonder why she thought to do this....why put yourself in any potential position to more easily get hurt?  I wouldn't even want to attempt this.  Unfortunately @PG Cruiser I think you are right....if something bad had happened we'd have people saying that balconies need to be enclosed in some way....which is silliness!

The scale of the picture still seems off to me.  The distance between the railing and the next deck above isn't the height of a normal grown adult, male or female.  

 

Maybe she's extremely tall? But you are right....now looking at it again it does seem rather strange.

The picture was taken by another passenger who was multiple cabins await according to the article ......... it’s like when you take picture from a distance at the Leaning Tower of Pisa and make it look like you’re holding it up

Where she is standing there is a ledge and there is none above her or below her.  That is a doctored picture!

She is on the balcony railing.  The white "wall" are just the opaque balcony dividers.  The quality of the photo and zooming in makes it appear as though she is standing on a lip on the other  of her balcony.

In your examples the people are close to the camera while the tower is far away from the camera.  They take advantage of a concept called perspective.  That's not the case in the balcony photo.  

In the balcony photo the person is standing on the railing with another foot of clearance between her head and the ceiling.  Seems off to me.

This is not fake news.  The person first posted on FB and was told to report her.  He showed the picture to RCCL staff and they figured out which cabin she was in.  They confronted her and then she was ordered to stay in her cabin until the next port.  She was escorted off of the Allure in Nassau Bahamas this morning and is permanently banned from any RCL (corporate wide) ship.

There are so many unknowns here:  the exact position of the camera taking the photo, the distance and angle to the subject (perspective as @twangster points out),  the camera lens magnification, photo date, photo edits, etc.  Without knowing these things the photo could in fact be real or not.  Without knowing we are all just guessing.  The photo could have been taken years ago.  Who would ever know...

Where did you get this info from?

Rear of the ship and one floor above the lifeboat seems like the location based on orientation. The steel formed into a cylinder can be seen in the pic and is not as pronounced anywhere else on the ship as far as I can tell. Something is off with the photo.

This is my guess for her location.  It's a corner location in those staterooms/balconies that stick out on the side of the ship. The cylinder looking thing below her are actually a row of balcony dividers.

EDIT:  I contacted the guy who (allegedly) took the picture. He said he was on the Starboard side, taking the picture from the Aft "hump". The woman was on the Forward "hump"

A reasonable explanation as to perspective.  I am guessing she is was on deck 7.  Does that seem right?

I read elsewhere that she was escorted off ship. That this may have been a mental health issue. It appears in picture someone’s arm around her legs. 

I had noticed the same thing.
