The U.S. Coast Guard has launched air and boat crews and is currently searching for the woman. The incident happened about 15 miles off the coast of Grand Bahama Island.  Carnival Ecstasy is currently on a five night cruise to the Bahamas from Charleston, South Carolina.  The ship is scheduled to arrive back in Charleston on Thursday.
