Cruise ship changed itinerary due to hurricane
Due to Hurricane Florence in the Eastern Atlantic, the "Norwegian Dawn"’s itinerary was changed. The vessel, departing from Boston on Sep 7, will skip Bermuda entirely. Instead, the ship will call in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Bar Harbor, Maine. The cruise line will continue to closely monitor the storm and provide additional updates as they become available.
Medevac off Boston
The US Coast Guard medevaced a 77-year-old man from the "Norwegian Dawn" on May 17, 2018, approximately 12 miles outside of Boston. The cruise ship called the Coast Guard Sector Boston Command Center and reported they were about 60 miles southeast of Nantucket with a passenger suffering from signs of cardiac distress. A 45-foot Response Boat-Medium crew from Coast Guard Station Boston responded to the call for help and rendezvoused with the "Norwegian Dawn". The station crew then transported the patient, his spouse, and Norwegian Dawn medical staff to the Black Falcon Cruise Terminal in Boston where his care was transferred to awaiting emergency medical services personnel. EMS transported the patient to Massachusetts General Hospital.
Three year old boy medevaced off Key West
The US Coast Guard medevaced a 3-year-old boy from the "Norwegian Dawn" approximately 200 miles southwest of Key West on March 26, 2018. Coast Guard watchstanders received a satellite phone call from the cruise ship stating one of their passengers was experiencing intestinal issues and needed further medical treatment. A Coast Guard Air Station Clearwater MH-60 helicopter crew to assist arrived on scene at approximately 4:30 p.m. and hoisted the child and his mother. The aircrew transported the child to the Lower Florida Keys Hospital in Key West in stable condition.Upload News
