According to an article recently published by The Indian Express, the ship was heading back to Singapore from Penang. The cruise was four days long and the couple were on the last day of their cruise.
Reeta Sahani has been missing since the 31st of July. According to an article published recently by Insider, Jakesh Sahani woke up in the middle of the night and found his wife to be missing. He reported it to the officials on the ship.
They told him that his wife was seen sitting at the ship’s railing around 4 AM in the CCTV footage. Even Vivek Sahani mentions in his post that the ship officials told his father that Reeta jumped overboard. He also alleged that the officials were trying to wash their hands of the affair.

1/2 My mother was travelling in Royal Carrribean cruise (spectrum of the seas) from Singapore. She has gone missing from the ship since this morning. Cruise staff are saying she jumped, but they have not shown us any footage and are washing their hands off @DrSJaishankar

In his heartfelt Instagram post, he asked the concerned Indian officials to take immediate action and to help the family in finding out what actually happened to his mother. He even shared his brother’s tweet regarding the same.
Both the Instagram post and the Tweet state that Jakesh was off-boarded to the next cruise in what seems to be a very inhumane way. Meanwhile, the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre or MRCC is searching for Reeta Sahani. They were notified regarding the incident at around 7:50 AM local time.
