Crew members disembarked in Puerto Limón
The 'Marina' and 'Caribbean Princess' will carry out an operation to repatriate 59 Costa Rican crew members in the Port of Limón. 17 were aboard the 'Marina' that arrived at the port on June 4, 2020. They will remain on the ship until June 5 when the other ship will arrived to disembark 42 staff. The groups started to disembark at 6:00 a.m. undergoing the same protocol for health screening that is followed at the airport and will also undergo the Covid-19 test. Officials of the Professional Migration Police will be at the dock carrying out the corresponding immigration control, then they will be notified of the sanitary isolation orders for 14 days. Both ships will leave again once the process in Puerto Limón has been completed.

The "Marina", which was due to call at Greenock Ocean Terminal on Aug 9, 2019, had to cancel the call to the Clyde because of poor weather conditions. The ship was instead heading to Dublin a day earlier with an ETA as of Aug 9, 8 p.m.
Medevac off Milford Sound
An American passenger was flown from Milford Sound to the Dunedin Hospital after falling ill aboard the "Marina" on Feb 22, 2015. The 75-year-old was evacuated on the advice of doctors on board the cruise ship. The Rescue Co-ordination Centre of New Zealand was advised of the man's condition but at that time the ship was too far off shore to be winched off by helicopter before nightfall. The "Marina" was scheduled to visit Milford Sound and the man was taken to shore by boat in the morning and transferred to hospital by the Otagorescue helicopter. HUpload News
