AT SEA - NOVEMBER 9: In this photo provided by the U.S. Navy, Carnival cruise ship C/V Splendor sits November 9, 2010 off the coast California. The aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan, was diverted from its current training maneuvers to a position south near the Carnival cruise ship to facilitate the delivery of 4,500 pounds of supplies to the cruise ship which lost power and became stranded early Monday after a fire in the engine room.

Rescuers are searching the waters off the coast of Forster, Australia for 30-year-old Paul Rossington and 26-year-old Kristen Schroder. (Surveillance camera footage shows the pair falling from their Carnival deck on Wednesday night.) Investigators are looking into the possibility that they jumped overboard on purpose; a Carnival spokeswoman insists that the ship's railing was built extra-high to prevent falls. Either way, the tragedy is not good for the image of the company responsible for this winter's infamous poop cruise (and last year's fatal capsizing incident.)
