A passenger has died after jumping off the world’s largest cruise ship on the first night of his week-long voyage, officials said.

The unidentified man jumped from Royal Caribbean’s new 1,200-foot Icon of the Seas — which carries 7,600 passengers and 2,350 crew — shortly after it left Florida for Honduras on Sunday morning, the Coast Guard told The Post.

The Coast Guard said: “The cruise ship sent one of its rescue boats, found the man and brought him back on board.”

“He was pronounced dead. The agency added that besides assisting in the search, the US Coast Guard had no significant role in this incident.
