Woman went over board off Freeport and was rescued
A woman has been rescued after she went overboard the 'Norwegian Sun' near Freeport in the Bahamas in the night of Nov 12, 2019. A rescue operation was immediately launched and within 20 minutes the rescue boat which was deployed by the ship rescued the woman. The 'Norwegian Sun' was heading towards the next port of call of Great Stirrup Cay, NCL’s own private island in the Bahamas. Once the woman was rescued she was provided medical attention from the ship’s medical staff. Her current condition was not known nor the details of her going overboard. The 'Norwegian Sun' was on a 5-day Bahamas cruise which included two calls at Great Stirrup Cay, a call in Nassau and Freeport. The ship arrived back at her homeport of Port Canaveral on Nov 14 after departing for the voyage on Nov 9.

The Aug 29 sailing of the "Norwegian Sun" canceled stops in the Bahamas and was scheduled to depart Cozumel, Mexico on Sep 1 at 6 p.m. The ship was supposed to return to Port Canaveral on Labor Day but NCL said it is was assessing alternative options.
