Is nature trying to tell us something?
First high winds and rough weather delayed the "Titanic Memorial Cruise" as 30 foot winds forced the Balmoral cruise ship to turn around with a little over 1,300 passengers aboard. Now news sources area reporting that a medical emergency involving a passenger has complicated matters. The cruise is detouring closer to shore in order for a helicopter from the Irish Coast Guard to medevac the passenger to safety.
The cruise set sail from southern England on Sunday and stopped in Cobh, Ireland on a cruise to retrace the Titanic voyage. On Monday, the cruise was delayed because of foul weather.
Once the sick passenger airlifted off the ship for medical treatment, the cruise will continue to New York as scheduled.
Two special memorial services are to take place over the weekend (1) midnight April 14, when the Titanic hit the iceberg, and (2) early April 15, when the cruise ship sank.
I am wondering if the Balmoral has a web cam or whether other cruise ships or vessels will be streaming video live?
