Australian officials Friday called off a massive air and sea search for a couple who fell overboard during a cruise, as the cruise ship company involved said safety was its first priority. 

Police arrive to investigate the Carnival Spirit at Sydney's Circular Quay on May 9, 2013. A massive air and sea search was underway Friday for a couple who fell overboard the Carnival Spirit during a luxury cruise off Australia.

Police said surveillance footage shows Paul Rossington, 30, and Kristen Schroder, 27, going overboard just before 9:00pm (1100 GMT) on Wednesday when the boat was about 60 nautical miles off Australia's New South Wales coast.
