Default Carnival Breeze Performs At-Sea Rescue
Funny, CNN doesn't seem to be saying anything about this story.

------------------------------------------------
Yesterday evening at approximately 8:30 p.m., Carnival Breeze was alerted by the United States Coast Guard (USCG) that two adults on a sailboat were in need of urgent medical care. Carnival Breeze deviated course and proceeded to the location of the sailboat, roughly 24 miles southeast of Miami, and brought the individuals on board where they were evaluated by the ship’s physician.

Although the original plan was to transfer the two individuals to a USCG cutter, strong currents and large swells prevented a safe transfer so one of the guests whose condition was considered more serious was airlifted via a USCG helicopter last night and the other remained on board until Carnival Breeze reached Key West, its first scheduled port of call, this morning. Both individuals were taken to shoreside medical facilities.

Carnival Breeze will remain in Key West until 5 p.m. today and then continue on its current six-day cruise which departed yesterday from Miami. Carnival Breeze operates six- and eight-day Caribbean cruises from Miami year-round.

Yes, and John D. Rockefeller thinks Carnival should reimburse the Coast Guard for cost of their rescue. How about when Carnival helps out in a rescue in aiding the Coast Guard? Does the government reimburse Carnival? Unlikely.

Great point. No doubt Jay Rockefeller will address this as soon as he gets done tallying this month's income from his great-grandfather's trust fund.

My thoughts exactly, Dave. People want Carnival to reimburse the government because they are a business that makes money, and in today's America, that is considered out of fashion.

Yet if it were the government spending tens of thousands of dollars to rescue a stranded cow during flood, that would be OK. Right.

And there are other things that never come to light. How about all the money raised for cancer with the "All Hands On Deck for the cure" or the orphanage Carnival supports on one of the islands. In the 10 years my daughter has danced for them she can tell many stories of rescues and demonstrations of high social conscience that never get any play in the press. Some times it just makes me boil.

On the flip side Uncle Gerry did have a very short sighted vision of Bean couting when he took over so some of this was due. Perhaps he has seen the light and will have a longer vision especially for maintenance and repair

It's the same with all the major cruise lines. They all do charity work, support good causes, etc. But you never hear a peep about it from the media. Royal Caribbean is a major supporter of "Make A Wish" with events on every cruise. When the earthquake hit Haiti, they were viciously attacked by the press for continuing to stop at Labadee. Never mind that it helped the local populace who work at Labadee, or that each ship carried relief supplies.

Just ask the folks here in Biloxi about Katrina...the people, even though devastated by the destruction, were starving for commerce to return. For weeks, you couldn't buy anything, especially building supplies, etc.

I applauded RC for taking the heat in the press and going back to Haiti.
