Man who died going overboard on Royal Caribbean cruise revealed as boss of top UK firm Rockstar Jonathan Pfahl – The Sun

THE man who died after going overboard on a Royal Caribbean cruise has been revealed as Jonathan Pfahl, the boss of top UK firm Rockstar.

Pfahl, a 37-year-old Australian entrepreneur, was with his family when he went overboard while cruising in the Virgin Islands on Wednesday morning.

His body was recovered by the crew while the Symphony of the Seas was travelling from St Kitts to St Thomas between 3am and 5am.

It is unclear how he fell overboard.


A friend close to the London-based entrepreneur said he was holidaying with his wife and two young children at the time.

The friend told “It was his wife’s birthday family holiday.

“All we know is he went overboard early [in the] morning and the body has not been released off the ship in Miami yet. Hopefully [it will be released] Saturday."

A statement from Royal Caribbean Cruises said: "We are deeply saddened by the tragic incident that occurred on the Symphony of the Seas en route to Saint Thomas this morning.

"Our hearts go out to the family and loved ones for their loss, and our care team is providing support and assistance during this difficult time."
