A cruise ship worker who went overboard and apparently treaded water for some 22 hours was in stable condition Monday, a day after being rescued by a crew from another passing cruise ship.

The staff member was seen falling from the side of a Norwegian Cruise Line ship heading for Miami at about 3.20pm on Saturday, 28 miles north of Cuba.

According to the Coast Guard, the crews searched a combined 1,630 square miles. The aircraft was later joined by another Coast Guard plane and a cutter vessel. The large cruise ship is staffed with more than 1,500 crew members and can accommodate almost 4,000 guests. Its itinerary had stops in Honduras, Belize and Mexico.

Norwegian said in a statement that the Miami-based cruise line is "extremely thankful" to Carnival Cruise Line, also based in Miami.

Carnival Cruise Line President Christine Duffy called the rescue "nothing short of miraculous".

The crew member was found and rescued by Carnival Glory 21 miles north of Cuba.

Passengers on the Getaway said the ship's captain announced that they were turning the cruise liner around. She praised the crewmembers who found the man, lauding their "amazing effort to rescue a fellow seafarer".
