A cruise ship worker who was thought to have treaded water for 22 hours after going overboard is recuperating after being picked up by another passing cruise ship, authorities say.

Carnival Cruise Lines announced they rescued the 33-year-old crew member from the Norwegian Getaway at about 2:15 p.m. on Sunday after Norwegian had reported the man missing the previous day.

But on Sunday, another cruise ship - the Carnival Glory - spotted the man in the sea about 45kms north of Cuba. Top agents vie for coveted hosted positions to leverage valuable supplier content that will help improve personal growth and increase overall sales.

"This is nothing short of miraculous", Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line told the Miami Herald. "Kudos to the Carnival Glory team for this unbelievable effort to rescue a fellow seafarer", the spokesperson said.

There is no word on how the crew member went overboard, but that person is in stable condition, officials said.
