Feb 27th Dream Cruise Bright Star

We were on this cruise and about 10 minutes before the fireworks an announcement for Bright Star was made for I believe Aft Deck 3. I know Bright Star is not a good code to hear and I literally said a prayer right then for whatever was happening.

Just wanted to see if any of you out there heard what happened.

Thank,
Ashley

The rumor I heard was someone had a heart attack, but like I said its a rumor, not fact.

I heard a similar announcement and was wondering the same thing. I think i heard a PA announcement twice, but can't remember when they appeared.

Heard the bright star code too for the atrium, asked my stateroom host and he said its for a medical emergency which requires the doctor going to the patient rather than the patient going to the medical center

Thanks for your responses, I have not heard anything else and I truly hope that no matter what happened those involved are ok and home safe.

How did you find out about the meaning of "bright star", just wondering if they tell that to cruisers. I'm sure the person was ok cause we didn't have to get to a port asap to get him off. That's a good sign.

I have heard the dis veterans talk in detail on here about what happens when bright star is announced and what it could and could not mean. When I heard it before the fireworks my heart sank. I agree and think its a great sign we did not have to go to port.
