Medevac off Nantucket
The US Coast Guard medevaced a 76-year-old man from the "Silver Muse" on Apr 26, 2018, approximately 80 miles south of Nantucket.

A Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod helicopter crew deployed to assist, arrived on scene at approximately 11:45 a.m. and hoisted the man. The aircrew then transported the man to Cape Cod Hospital where his care was transferred to awaiting medical personnel.
Silversea to Send New Cruise Ship Silver Muse to Sydney
Luxury line Silversea will reward its growing base of Australian passengers by sending its newly christened ship Silver Muse to cruise in Australian waters over the 2018/19 summer season. The 596-passenger vessel is scheduled to arrive in Sydney on 6 January 2019, docking at the White Bay Cruise Terminal. While not officially announced, Cruise Critic has been informed of plans to bring the line’s newest vessel down under. Silver Muse will become the second luxury mid-size ship to visit Australia in its first two years of operation, following the arrival earlier this year of Seabourn’s new Seabourn Encore. Speaking at a launch party for Silver Muse in Sydney this week, the line’s Director of Sales and Marketing Asia-Pacific Amber Wilson said itinerary details and reservations for Silver Muse and the rest of the fleet in the first quarter of 2019 will open “in the next few weeks”, however she anticipated Silver Muse would offer a pair of itineraries between Sydney and Auckland in each direction, sailing around the country’s southern tip. http://www.cruisecritic.com/news/news.cfm?ID=7759News schreiben
