The tourist said she was “lucky to be alive” and thanked her “wonderful” the rescuers as she was taken to a hospital in the Croatian city of Pula.

Rescuers said Miss Longstaff believed to be a former virgin Atlantic cabin crew member, who now works in a private plane, was exhausted, but she came by the time they took her to shore.

“She said that she does yoga helped her as she comes. And she said that she sings not freezing in the sea at night,” an unnamed rescuer told reporters.

Miss Longstaff were found swimming less than 2 km from the point where it disappeared from the Norwegian star as it made its way to Venice. She looked relaxed and happy as she reached the Croatian city of Pula on a Sunday morning.

It is not clear how Miss Longstaff was in the water, but she said she “fell overboard” the ship.

She told reporters, wait: “I fell from the Norwegian star, I was in the water about 10 hours. These wonderful guys have saved me.”

Miss Longstaff said she was sitting on the back deck before the incident occurred, adding: “I was very lucky to be alive.”

She believed it fell into the Adriatic from the seventh deck of a cruise ship 965ft shortly before midnight on Saturday, about 100 km South from Pula.

The ship alerted authorities, who dispatched Croatian coast guard ship Cavtat and PC-9 aircraft search to look for her all night. Also used were three ship.

In the end she was found around 9: 30 Sunday morning to swim not far from where she disappeared.

It is clear that miss Longstaff was released from the hospital and need to be reunited with her family.
