Miami-Dade Fire Rescue (MDFR) medevaced an injured cruise ship crew on Friday, April 10, off East Florida's coast (near PortMiami). The injured man was transferred from the anchored Azamara Pursuit to MDFR’s Fireboat 73. The Azamara Cruises crew needed treatment at a local hospital, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue revealed.

The 694-passenger ship Azamara Pursuit was formerly operated as "R Eight" (Renaissance Cruises, between 2001–2003), Minerva II (Swan Hellenic, 2003–2007), Royal Princess (Princess Cruises, 2007–2011) and Adonia (P&O UK, 2011-2018).

On September 26, 2017, Azamara Club Cruises (RCCL Royal Caribbean subsidiary company) announced an agreement with P&O UK (Carnival Corporation subsidiary company) to purchase the Adonia ship. The vessel's fleet transfer from P&O to Azamara was scheduled for March 2018. Following the extensive drydock refit and refurbishment at "Harland & Wolff Heavy Industries" (shipyard in Belfast Ireland), the ship was renamed from Adonia to "Azamara Pursuit".
