The Carnival Sensation cruise ship was ordered to return to port in Miami today after a passenger was found in urgent need of medical attention. But due to rough sea conditions the ship was instead diverted to Government Cut, where rescue workers met up with the ship. The exact nature of the passenger’s medical emergency was not revealed.
In a statement, Carnival said that the situation will cause the cancellation of another planned sailing to Grand Cayman later this week. Affected passengers will be given a credit for future travel
