The 46-year-old, who had been on the Norwegian Star cruise ship, was taken to hospital in the town of Pula.

She fell from the Norwegian Star cruise ship, about 95 kilometers off Croatia's coast shortly before midnight Saturday.

Longstaff - who was found a mile from where she fell in - told Croatian television that she was "lucky to be alive". However, she still managed to explain that she was in the water for 10 hours.

Longstaff practices yoga, he said, which "helped her as she was fit".

The Norwegian Star arrived in its port in Venice, Italy, Sunday afternoon - without the woman - and departed for its next stop 2 1/2 hours later.

While the circumstances of how she fell are still being investigated, a cruise ship staffer named Daniel Punch said that it looked like Longstaff had jumped into the water after a day spent drinking and arguing with her boyfriend and friends, The Sun UK reported.
