  30 November 2018Crew / Passenger Injuries and Overboards

(CruiseMapper email by Dennis Joseph de Gracia) Friday, on November 30, 2018, we were on Celebrity Equinox and docked in Nassau (no incidents here). While the Equinox was docked, we saw an ambulance (lights and sirens on) go down the pier and park at Norwegian Bliss. Our friends were on NCL Bliss and mentioned that a woman was injured in the waterslide earlier. She apparently got stuck in the slide, and two people slid into her. I've been looking in the news, but haven't seen anything.

The incident occurred during 7-day Eastern Caribbean cruise (itinerary Nov 24 - Dec 1) roundtrip from homeport Miami to St Thomas Island (USVI), Tortola Island (BVI) and Nassau Bahamas (port stay 12noon - 7 pm).

  24 October 2018Other Incidents

On October 24, 2018, due to Hurricane Willa, the cruise liner was rerouted from Mexico to San Diego CA, where arrived at ~7 am. The incident occurred during 7-day Mexican Riviera cruise (itinerary Oct 20-27) roundtrip from homeport Los Angeles to Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, and Cabo San Lucas. As a result, only Puerto Vallarta was visited as scheduled, while Mazatlan and Cabo were substituted with San Diego overnight.

Hurricane Willa (Category 5 storm) formed near southwestern Mexico, with landfall in Mexico's state Sinaloa (as Category 3 storm). Hurricane's wind speeds at landfall were estimated 120 mph (190 kph, or 54 m/s), ranking it the strongest cyclone landfalling in Mexico.
