Wow. That was a quick turnaround. I wonder if they even had a line secured to the dock?

They have not evacuated the guest yet as they have not docked, she is still in the process of rotating to dock as she normally does.

I live in a small island community and I work at the hospital that serves a bunch of small islands. It's super expensive to helicopter out (I want to say at least $20k) and there's size considerations. The shelf to put a patient is super small. You have to be under a certain width (measure from your back to your chest/belly). I remember looking at the paperwork when I was precepting in an ER, and my chest size alone would have knocked me out. And you have the situation where if the person has a family they can't go in the copter. They'd want to be there for their family member. So it would probably have been easier to back pedal a little bit than say fly the person out.

Poor family. This is why I think it would be fun to be a cruise line nurse. (Fun from a student nurse perspective....)

Nope, now that lil blinking thing in the water is a police boat. I sure do hope it's not serious.

Thank you kdeans for your medical perspective. Helps to know how they're approaching the emergency.

Yuck. NO THANK YOU. I once thought this too; I thought I'd love to live aboard the ship, but then i really thought about it - treating all of the motion sickness, cuts/scrapes, diarrhea & dehydration - BORING. The occasional medical emergency would not be enough to break up the monotony. It would grow old & tire fast IMHO.

I was on the Wonder, we had left Puerto Vallarta 6 hours earlier and turned around for a medical emergency. Once they quickly offloaded the patient we cruised very fast to get on schedule for our next stop.

Definitely saying prayers that it isn't too serious. I've been on two cruises before, each had minor medical emergencies...broken bone on one...not sure on the other but we were already in port.

Medical mishaps occur more often then we are aware when cruising, most of us are just lucky enough to never know it happens.

There was a medical evac on the Wonder last week. On Sunday morning the Captain shared that the patient was evacuated in Key West at 2 am. Sounds like the DCL medical staff has been kept busy.

Who is the Captain on Fantasy right now ? Poor guy has had his share of problems. Also hoping the best for the families, the 4 year old boy from last week lives about 15 miles from us.
