Princess Cruise Ship Rerouted After Medical Emergency
(9:24 a.m. EST) -- Sapphire Princess spent a second, unscheduled, day in Cabo San Lucas yesterday after an onboard medical emergency necessitated the ship's return to port Wednesday.

Princess Cruises' spokeswoman Karen Candy told Cruise Critic, Sapphire Princess was en route to Puerto Vallarta when the medical emergency occurred. The ship returned to Cabo, where it had been docked for the day, to transfer the passenger to an onshore hospital, then spent the night at sea.

"Due to the delay, the ship was unable to make the originally scheduled call to Puerto Vallarta and returned to Cabo for a second port day," she added.

Princess is looking into adding another port, possible San Diego, to replace the Puerto Vallarta stop.

Sapphire Princess departed Los Angeles on Sunday, December 15 for a seven-night roundtrip Mexico sailing.
