Has not been a great week for cruising Bermuda

Just saw that the Celebrity Summit had to return to Bermuda to disembark an injured passenger who had fallen for additional medical attention. In light of the NCL tragedy, it has been a difficult week for cruising in Bermuda this week.

Wishing the gentleman a speedy recovery.

Sad

Link didn't work, but I googled it and found the same page and read the article.."man was hurt in a fall which resulted in facial injuries." That is very vague...

Well, I found the article again and the link is the same as above but didn't work for me either. I got over it. In any event, it seems that the person fell on the ship. I'm not surprised that there isn't much in the way of detail as the new agency is land-based. The ship dropped him off and left.

In 2009, when I was on my cruise we hit a bit of rough weather, an older gentleman was trying to get up and the ship lurched. Sadly , he broke a hip. When we got to Hilo there was an ambulance and medical team waiting to take him to the hospital. The care and attention he received from Princess impressed me as well as the way they were speaking to him. I trust that the person injured in case receive great care form the line and Bermuda medical teams.

I am sure the gentleman received very good care both onboard and land. Clearly the ship's medical team felt it was in his best interest to get to more advanced care. Kudos!

I was on a Princess Cruise that returned to port early due to two ill passengers ...They had stabilized them enough that they seemed to be doing well as taken off to ambulances waiting.  Our cruise was really not affected - got in at midnight rather than 6 am.  Hope all is well for the gentleman who fell.
