Searches for the woman have now been called off, authorities confirm.

A massive search operation is continuing at sea for a woman who fell overboard from the P&O Pacific Dawn. "The rails are all chest hight on me and I'm 5'4", she said.

A passenger overboard alert sounded on board the 245-metre, 1500-berth vessel about 4pm on Thursday (local time), forcing the ship to double back and search through the night, about 1000 kilometres north-east of Brisbane and 300 kilometres west of New Caledonia. The woman is reportedly travelling with her children, however, it is unclear if they were on the deck with her.

Jones said the ship continued in a search pattern throughout the night.

"The search, which began immediately after a crew member reported a guest had been seen to go over the side of the ship, was suspended in consultation with maritime rescue authorities".

"The "man overboard" incident response was activated straight away", he said.

'Pacific Dawn has now resumed her course for Brisbane where preparations are being made for a late arrival.

"There is nothing to suggest anything of this kind", P&O said in a statement.

Authorities failed to find any trace of the woman overnight and the search was abandoned just before 8am on Friday. "Man over board an hour ago".

P&O released a statement on Friday, saying "the cruise line's thoughts and prayers are with the family of the missing guest at this distressing time".

Australian maritime authorities chose to end the search about 07:30 local time today (April 13).

While the passenger said the emergency was handled well by crew she added there has been no official announcement about where the woman fell from.

The ship was on a week-long cruise from Brisbane to the South Pacific, stopping at Noumea, Lifou and Port Vila.
