A passenger aboard the Royal Caribbean Anthem of the Seas contacted me yesterday evening stating that:
“On the Anthem of the seas. The ship had to come back a night early . . . there are 4 critically ill passengers on board . . . Captain not saying anymore then 4 critically ill and pleaded we understand because if this was our family we would want the same.” The captain specifically stated that the passengers were in “critical” medical condition.
The passenger subsequently stated that two and possibly three of the passengers had died. There was no information whether the passengers had been injured or were sick.
@PTZtv indicated that the cruise ship returned to the harbor in New York early last night for “medical emergencies.”
It’s surprising how little insight we have received on this story, as one other blogger notes.
