|17 June 2019||Crew / Passenger Injuries and Overboards|
(overboard/rescued) On June 17, 2019, a female passenger intentionally jumped overboard into the sea. The Irish woman jumped from the ship upon leaving Port Genoa (Italy) and was soon rescued by an experienced male crew (Samoan). She was recovered from the water in minutes, provided with first medical care on the liner and shortly after disembarked (together with her family) for further medical attention ashore.
Reportedly, the woman was drinking with her husband and after an argument, she decided to jump overboard from Indian Ocean Deck (deck 7, height from waterline ~20 m / 66 ft).
The incident occurred at the beginning of 7-day Mediterranean cruise (itinerary June 17-24) roundtrip from homeport Genoa to La Spezia, Civitavecchia-Rome, Cannes (France), Palma de Mallorca (Majorca, Spain), Barcelona, and Ajaccio (Corsica, France).
|17 August 2018||Structural and Technical Issues|
On August 17, 2018, while operating on 7-day Mediterranean cruise itinerary (ports Marseille, Genoa, Naples, Messina, Valletta, Barcelona), the ship suffered Lobby stairwell flooding. The accident was filmed by several passengers. One of the videos was posted on the company's Facebook page but was soon removed.
The flooding was probably caused by a broken pipe and resulted in water pouring down the central stairwell. This was liner's first incident after its inauguration on June 7 (2018).
