It’s Another Slap in the Face for Cruises in the UK

The cruise industry has received another setback after the UK Foreign Office updated its advisory against cruise ship travel for all British nationals.

Earlier this week a 72-year-old woman had difficulties while in Anthem of the Seas swimming pool. The medical emergency occurred on Tuesday, August 10.

In a statement from Royal Caribbean which is the cruise line which operated the large ship, an elderly woman was having problems while in the ship’s swimming pool. Guests witnessed the woman in trouble and she was helped out. The ships medical staff attended and provided medical attention. The woman needed further medical care so Anthem of the Seas headed back to its home port at full speed.

You can ready the full statement from the cruise line below:

On Tuesday, August 10, a 72-year old female from the U.S. onboard Anthem of the Seas was witnessed by guests having difficulty swimming in one of the ship’s pools. The guest was helped out of the pool, was initially treated by the ship’s medical team, but required additional medical attention. Therefore, the ship increased its speed for the earliest possible arrival into Cape Liberty, New Jersey for a medical evacuation.

Royal Caribbean’s Care Team provided support to the guest’s family and our thoughts and prayers are with them.

The 168,666 gross ton vessel was already sailing back towards its home port in Bayonne New Jersey at the time. The speed was increased so the woman could receive medical care on land. Anthem of the Seas is the second Quantum-class ship is sailing out of New Jersey to the Caribbean and Bermuda.
