(Newser) – A swimsuit-clad woman who climbed over a cruise ship balcony for a death-defying photo better like the image because there will be no retakes. The unnamed woman was kicked off Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas and banned from all future Royal Caribbean cruises, reports CNN. Fellow passenger Peter Blosic alerted crew members after spotting the woman on the narrow ledge beyond the balcony of her room as the ship neared Labadee, Haiti. She and a companion were removed from the ship at its next stop in Falmouth, Jamaica.

“Earlier this week on the Allure of the Seas a guest was observed recklessly and dangerously posing for a photo by standing on her stateroom balcony railing with the help of her companion," a Royal Caribbean spokesman explains. The cruise line bars all passengers from sitting, standing, or climbing on railings. Blosic was more blunt. She was "acting like a moron!" he wrote on Facebook, where he posted his own photo of the woman, per Sky News. (Read more cruise ships stories.)
