Traveler Who Jumped 11 Stories Off Cruise Ship Hopes He Doesn’t Rouse Others

A man who was prohibited from Royal Caribbean Cruises in the wake of bouncing into the ocean from his eleventh floor balcony hopes his activities don’t rouse others.

A week ago, 27-year-old Nick Naydev of Vancouver, Washington, posted a video on Instagram appearing taking one little jump for a man and one giant bounce of ineptitude. He dove 100 feet into shark-infested waters.

Incredibly, he wasn’t genuinely harmed yet said he could “barely walk” for three days a short time later, as per The Washington Post.

The primary harm was monetary: Naydev and his companions were commenced the voyage in the Bahamas, and he needed to spend $200 for a plane ticket home from Nassau, the Post said.

The 10-second trick drove the voyage line to boycott Naydev and his companions forever, as indicated by an announcement Royal Caribbean provided for “Inside Edition”:

“This was stupid and reckless behavior, and he and his companions have been banned from ever sailing with us again. We are exploring legal action.”

Naydev told “Inside Edition” that he didn’t generally consider the dangers previously taking that jump of logic.

“Nothing was really going through my mind. I’m like, ‘I gotta do this,’ and just two seconds later, I just jumped and didn’t really think it through,” he admitted.

As anyone might expect, alcohol may have been included.

“The previous night we were drinking quite a bit, so I was still feeling the effects of the alcohol,” he included.

Presently, after seven days, Naydev stresses that his rash hop may rouse copycats.

“I hope I don’t inspire anybody to do this because it is very dangerous,” he said. “I mean, don’t think this is a joke.”

In any case, the man who recorded Naydev’s bounce told Yahoo! that he’s baffled in how Royal Caribbean took care of the occurrence, however he appears not to get the point.

“He’s jumped from those kind of heights before, and we didn’t really care about the consequences with the cruise company,” he explained. “We just wanted to get a video of it and make it go viral.”
