Now I see on Galveston cam that there was a medical emergency. Must be serious. Makes me feel so bad for those involved.

I would think dispatching the Coast Guard would be much quicker ?

If so, the ship does whatever the USGC instructs it to do.
Happened to us too - in December!

Not all medical issues are "urgent".

When it happend to us in December - it was a younger passenger who injured a leg "horsing around" in Camp Carnival. We were instruted to return to Galveston and the patient was "handed off" to medics at the pier.

The transfer was very quick and to the point - we were only there a few minutes. DH and I laughed that we barely even stopped !!

Magic is docking right now. If past history is correct and it is medical, don't blink, she will be gone quickly.

Last word I got was that the Dr. onboard could not handle the situation.
