(CNN) - It might be the ultimate selfie, but it just got a woman banned from a cruise ship for life.

The woman took the picture as she stood on top of the railing of her room’s balcony. It happened during her trip on Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas this week as it was headed for Haiti.

A fellow passenger snapped a picture of her taking the selfie thinking she was possibly going to jump and alerted the crew.

The woman was identified and later removed from the ship when it reached Jamaica.

Royal Caribbean in a statement said it does not permit such reckless and dangerous actions for guests' own safety.

As a result, the cruise line said the woman and her companion are banned for life from any of its future trips.
