Three medevacs from three ships in 24 hours
Helicopters rescued four ill passengers from three cruise ships at sea off the California coast within 24 hours. The series began on April 28, 2023, at about 7 p.m., when the 'Carnival Panorama' requested assistance. A Coast Guard helicopter airlifted a 47-year-old woman with a progressive acute illness from the ship about 100 miles south of San Diego. At 10:20 p.m., the 'Majestic Princess' requested help with two passengers needing medical assistance about 500 miles west of Los Angeles. A Coast Guard helicopter met the ship on April 29 at about 10 a.m. closer to shore to pick up a 74-year-old woman with symptoms of a stroke and a 77-year-old woman with kidney failure. At 12:20 p.m. that day, the 'Carnival Spirit' radioed for help with an 84-year-old woman possibly suffering a stroke about 86 miles from San Clemente Island. The helicopter completing the evacuation of the two women from the 'Majestic Princess' was sent to pick up that patient as well. The crew flew for more than seven hours that day.
Cruise ship rescued 24 migrants
The 'Carnival Spirit' rescued a group of 24 migrants who were stranded in a small boat in the Caribbean Sea on April 11, 2023. The cruise ship was sailing towards Aruba, near the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico, when the distressed boat was spotted. The castaways were transferred aboard, checked by the ship’s medical personnel and found to be in good condition. The ship’s officers contacted Coastguard officials from Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic to co-ordinate the transfer onto a vessel of the Coastguard which arrived on the scene at 3 p.m. LT near La Romana in the Dominican Republic, enabling the 'Carnival Spirit' to resume its voyage. The vessel had no scheduled stops on that day, and its call to Aruba went ahead as scheduled. The ship left Miami on a week long cruise April 8 and will return on April 15.
Cruise ship brings Filipino crews to Visayas and Mindanao
The 'Carnival Spirit' joined the flotilla of cruise ships at Manila Bay in the morning of April 25, 2020, with more than 500 Filipino crew members. The ship was expected to bring Filipino crews to Visayas and Mindanao, aside from crew who will disembark at Manila. The Philippine Coast Guard will allow cruise ships to dock after the 14-day quarantine monitored by the BOQ. The DOTr, in coordination with manning agencies and ship management, ordered the mandatory quarantine for Filipino crews due to the huge number of seafarers and lack of land facilities. By next week more cruise ships from P&O Australia, Holland America and Costa will be arriving in Manila to unload thousands more Filipino seafarers. Whether arriving by air or sea, OFWs would need a quarantine certificate from the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) and BOQ before reuniting with their families. The welfare agency would be the one to issue a certificate of length of stay, while the BOQ will issue a certificate of completion of quarantine. The certificates will serve as proof that they didn’t manifest any symptoms of COVID-19 and that they completed the 14-day quarantine. Upon arrival, OFWs without symptoms will be brought to a hotel or resort with proper accommodation and meals for their 14-day mandatory facility-based quarantine. OWWA will assist in transporting OFWs to the IATF-approved quarantine facilities where they will be closely monitored.News schreiben
