Logistically Unusual Medevac from Coral Princess

Most medevacs from cruise ships have become rather routine, even though they require a great deal of expert flying on the part of the Coast Guard air crew and careful seamanship by the officers of the ship to coordinate the operation. Occasionally, the logistics of the operation take it out of the routine, however.

Coral Princess had one of those emergencies on Monday night as it was sailing from Aruba to Port Everglades.

Details appeared in the October 7, 2010, edition of Cruise News Daily.
