Delray Beach, Fla. -- The U.S. Coast Guard searched the ocean off the Florida coast for a man who either jumped or fell overboard from a cruise ship early Sunday morning.

A spokeswoman confirmed to ABC News that the Coast Guard had been called around 2 a.m. about a passenger who had jumped overboard the cruise ship Bahamas Celebration, which was approximately 27 nautical miles from Delray Beach, Fla.

According to a spokesman for the Celebration Cruise Line, the male passenger was traveling aboard the ship with an unidentified companion. No further identifying information was being released.
