MIAMI (AP) -- The U.S. Coast Guard has suspended its search for a Tennessee woman who fell off a cruise ship into the Atlantic Ocean off Florida.

Royal Caribbean says the Allure of the Seas was headed to Nassau, the Bahamas, when "a guest witnessed another guest going overboard" Sunday night. A surveillance camera also caught the woman's fall.

The Coast Guard says its crews searched more than 2,300 square miles by air and sea before calling off the search Tuesday.

The FBI is investigating what caused the 21-year-old woman to fall overboard.

The Coast Guard says the woman is from Bartlett, Tenn. No other information about her was immediately available.

The Allure of the Seas skipped its stop in Nassau because of the search. It is due Wednesday in St. Maarten.
