Cruise passenger banned for life after attempting selfie on balcony railing

Posted: Updated:

A woman has been banned from a cruise ship for life after attempting to take a selfie while standing dangerously on top of the railing of her room's balcony.

The woman was on her trip aboard Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas this week as it headed toward Haiti.

A fellow passenger snapped a picture, and thinking she was possibly going to jump -- alerted the crew.

The woman was identified and later removed from the ship when it reached Jamaica.

In a statement, the cruise line said the woman and her companion are banned for life from any of its future trips.
