Three Medical Emergencies Prompt Cruise Ship Itinerary Change
(5:30 p.m. EST) --
Freedom of the Seas
altered its itinerary Tuesday when three passengers were evacuated from the vessel for medical reasons.
Line spokeswoman Cynthia Martinez said the ship traded a planned call on
for a stop in
on Wednesday as a result.
Martinez also verified that the three incidents "... were not related, just an odd occurrence."
Cruise Critic member
is onboard and
had this to say
about the events: "... the coast guard airlifted one person off
. We were then diverted to
to evacuate two more people."
The rest of the itinerary has remained unchanged, and there has been no word yet on whether passengers on the sailing will be offered any sort of compensation for the port swap.
