>It’s just your average medical evac


The other day when we were at sea I was sitting in my cabin when I noticed a huge disturbance outside the porthole. Accompanied by a huge noise, I could only assume it was a helicopter evacuation. “Huh,” I thought to myself and carried on with my day. I imagine they didn’t make an announcement because these kind of things draw many spectators, and it is a very dangerous procedure to begin with.

Plus it would have put a huge dent in the ongoing Captains Cocktail party. What would you choose – free booze, or maybe slam back a double of whatever the most expensive free booze is you can get and then go watch the helicpoter evac. Great idea! Luckily one guy was out with a camera, and put the pictures on the office intranet for all to see.

I know nothing about the situation or the poor unfortunate soul who was sick enough to be airlifted out, and I feel bad to ask about it, but I hope they are ok.

The helicpoter evac is really an amazing feat. I have seen them before and is is always very impressive.

ps – the first picture is not our ship – just another one passing in the (night) afternoon…

  1. >Dear stacey. Wow, they are very cool photos. I have to say I’ve never thought about what happens to people who are really sick on the boats before. Do you get the see the ‘white nights’ on this trip??

    >Do you remember that we had one of these on our cruise a year ago and it WAS something to see?! I was lucky to get some cool shots of the helicopter. But you DO wonder about the poor soul who caused all the commotion!
