A Royal Caribbean cruise ship has been delayed and as a result is staying overnight in port.

Radiance of the Seas is spending an overnight in Newcastle, Australia due to bad weather conditions and a medical emergency. According to local news, the ship was forced to stay longer than expected as a large 8-meter ocean swell formed in the afternoon on Tuesday, April 11.

Another reason the vessel didn’t depart the port was that a 74-year-old passenger suffered a heart attack and needed urgent medical attention. Thankfully the ship was in port when this happened so the passenger could be immediately¬†taken to a land Hospital for further care.

Radiance of the Seas is currently on an 8-night voyage which departed Sydney on April 10. Port authorities have given the ship clearance for departure on Wednesday morning, April 12. The ship was originally scheduled to depart Newcastle at 5:00 PM.

The ship is 90,090 gross tons and can carry over 2,100 guests at double occupancy. Radiance of the Seas will arrive back at its homeport on April 18.
