Coast Guard Medevacs Woman from Norwegian Majesty

The US Coast Guard received a call from Norwegian Majesty today while the ship was still in Chesapeake Bay, requesting a 74-year-old woman be medevaced from the cruise ship due to an eye injury.

The call to the Coast Guard actually originated from the cell phone of the harbor pilot aboard Norwegian Majesty. The Coast Guard dispatched a 41-foot utility boat from Coast Guard Station Annapolis, Md and the woman was taken to a Baltimore hospital for treatment.

Norwegian Majesty departed from Baltimore today on a seven-day cruise to St. George's Bermuda.
