When Will Each Cruise Line Resume Sailings Again?

Take a look at when each cruise line will resume cruises once again due to the current state of travel around the world.

A passenger has been rescued after going overboard a Disney cruise ship yesterday evening.

According to a report on Chip & Co, a male passenger had gone overboard the Disney Dream vessel on Thursday evening while the ship was at sea. An immediate rescue was launched so that the man could be rescued from the water. There are no details about the specific time or exact location where this happened.

The site goes on to report that passengers onboard saw a Coast Guard airplane fly pass and the ship slowed down and circled. These reports support an overboard situation as ships will usually backtrack their route in the hope of finding any person who is missing at sea. The rescue operation apparently took less than an hour and the man was given medical attention in the ship’s medical center.

Disney Dream was just west of Freeport, Bahamas at the time and was sailing back to its homeport of Port Canaveral, Florida where it is scheduled to arrive on May 5. The ship was on a 4-night Bahamas itinerary which included calls in Nassau and Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island resort. Disney Dream is a 130,000 gross ton vessel which can carry over 2,500 guests at double occupancy.

We hope the man recovers well and great job to the ship’s crew for getting him back onboard.
