Cruise Hive Weekly News: November 28, 2020

More cruise news from the week and as usual, it's been pretty busy across most major cruise lines.

A Carnival Cruise Ship has been delayed due to a medevac by the U.S. Coast Guard.

We don’t usually post about cruise ship medevacs as they are common and expected when thousands of people are cruising every day. In this case, it is important to know that the Carnival Pride has been delayed back into its homeport of Baltimore tomorrow, June 25.

The Spirit-class vessel will now arrive at noon instead of the morning. This means the departure of the next scheduled June 25 sailing could have a later departure from Baltimore to allow time for new provisions and guest turnaround.

The reason for the delay is a 52-year-old man onboard the Carnival Pride went into shock and needed further medical care on land. On Saturday at 1:15 AM 50 miles east of St. Augustine the U.S. Coast Guard airlifted the man to a Helicopter and was then transferred to UF Health Shands Hospital in Jacksonville, Florida.

The Carnival Pride which is operated by Carnival Cruise Line is sailing a 7-day Eastern Caribbean itinerary with calls in Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay, and Freeport. The ship is 88,500 gross tons and can carry over 2,100 guests at double occupancy.

We do hope the medvaced passenger is ok and makes a full recovery.
