The body of a man has been found after he reportedly jumped from the 10th floor of a Royal Caribbean Cruise.

The Oasis of the Seas cruise - which reportedly was catering to the LGBTQ community - was docked at Old Juan, just off Puerto Rico's north shore, when a man reportedly went over the rails from the 10th floor of the ship, according to local reports.

Following a desperate search, CBS reports 'divers found the body of a white male' about an hour or so later.

Royal Caribbean later confirmed CCTV footage "indicates the man intentionally went overboard. A roll call is currently underway to identify the missing passenger.

According to Cruise Law News, the ship was due to sail on a week-long Atlantis cruise from Fort Lauderdale.

David Begnaud from CBS tweeted: "BREAKING: Divers just recovered the body of a white male who fell from the 10th story deck of @RoyalCarribean's Oasis of the Seas' which is docked in San Juan, Puerto Rico, right now.

"The ship is hosting an Atlantis cruise which caters to the LGBTQ+ community."
