We were awaken in the middle of the night on the last night of the cruise for an urgent call for a specific blood type. There had been an accident and the crew member required a transfusion.
Gosh nothing like being woken up at 3 am with a voice in your cabin.
We never did find out if the person was ok or not.
We have had several medical emergencies on cruise (we are old folks) and a couple of deaths.
