Royal Caribbean Ship Medevacs Three Guests

According to Cruise Critic board members, Royal Caribbean’s Freedom of the Seas performed a medevac of three guests on Tuesday.

The medevacs reportedly took place throughout the day on Tuesday, one occurring while the Freedom of the Seas was anchored at Coco Cay, Royal Caribbean’s private island. The other two medevacs took place after sailing from Coco Cay, rerouting to Nassau, Bahamas.

Cruise Currents reached out to Royal Caribbean for a statement on the situation. A Royal Caribbean spokesperson responded Thursday morning stating that the Freedom of the Seas was required to medevac 3 guests, whose emergencies were unrelated. Due to these delays, the ship was forced to skip a call in St. Thomas, opting for a call in San Juan.

The statement concluded, “We wish our guests a speedy recovery.
