Have you ever been on a cruise ship that had to do a rescue?
No but several times we were on cruises where we had to get people (passengers or crew) off for medical attention. Some times they used a helicopter, other times they transferred them to a smaller boat. Twice someone died on board.
We picked up some people from their boat in mexico , a helicopter pick up and one woman over board
Not a rescue, per say, but anyone remember this??

Carnival Elation Mexico cruise
taking a passenger back to San Diego
Our first ever cruise was aboard Carnival’s Jubilee way back in 1996. Our first day at sea the ship made an emergency stop at Cabo San Lucas to disembark a woman who had gone into premature labor. Before the end of the week they made an announcement that mother and daughter were both doing fine and that the baby had been given the middle name of “Jubilee”!
