On Breakaway now, course change.

Recommended Posts

Take that with a grain of salt - she is heavily medicated on sea sickness meds, but I did find this: https://www.capecodtoday.com/article/2018/10/27/243014-Air-Station-Cape-Cod-Crew-Searching-Man-Overboard

I just heard over the marine radio, they are now going to anchor past the bridge for a medivac...

My mother just texted again.  The port is back open but they're going to do a medvac first and are expected at the port in about an hour.  Fingers crossed that's true!

Wow, she looks like she is an anchor. Is she even moving?

 

Just saw the post about the Medivac, I hope all are ok.

Wrong. I am on the BA now. We have been anchored past the bridge for quite some time. Medivac by coast guard. No more information.

oh. on the webcam, it looked like she was moving. I guess it is winds and currents moving the ship around

Most likely. We have been informed that we will slowly make our way shortly but have been told to stay in our cabins until further notice.

They're making you stay in your cabins????  wow

 

Captain said stay in your cabin but the room stewards are kicking us out

¯\_(ツ)_/¯  what a mess of a disembarkation this is going to be. And we still aren’t even moving.

Surprised they can not do extra activity like have a movie in the theater to help the people onboard pass the time.

 

according to a roll call post. checkin is now delayed to 10pm.

on the webcam, you can listen to the VHF radio. They were saying the breakaway was at anchorage due to strong currents/winds. they had to wait for it the weather to improve before they can move again.

2 medical emergencies and now confining passengers to their cabins and not docking!  My mind is going to a dark place.  I hope I’m wrong.

I think it was just one medical emergency.  My mom said they went to Turks and Caicos for the medical evacuation but the passenger was stabilized and chose to stay onboard until NY.  (I don't think they actually stopped in Turks and Caicos)
