Carnival Glory Rescues NCL Crew Member

Posted on: July 1st, 2018Featured, News Blog

On Sunday, July 1 at approximately 2:15 pm EDT, the crew of Carnival Glory rescued a 33-year-old crew member from Norwegian Getaway who had been drifting in the water approximately 21 miles north of Cuba.  Norwegian Cruise Line had reported him missing on Saturday.  The NCL crew member is being treated by Carnival Glory’s shipboard medical team.

Carnival Glory departed Miami on Saturday, June 30 and was at sea en route to Cozumel.  At 1 pm EDT, a hotel steward aboard the ship reported seeing a person in the water and notified bridge officers who quickly started rescue operations, including reducing speed, reversing course, and lowering a lifeboat to retrieve the man.

“This is nothing short of miraculous,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.  “Kudos to the Carnival Glory team for this amazing effort to rescue a fellow seafarer.”

Carnival Glory is on a seven-day Western Caribbean cruise.
