Nearly 300 passengers fall ill on Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas Cruise ship

Visitors Coverage

Nearly 300 passengers aboard the Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas cruise ship fell ill with a stomach virus after it departed Port Canaveral in Brevard County, Florida, on Sunday.

A total of 277 guests and crew members have been affected with a gastrointestinal illness, a spokesman for Royal Caribbean Cruises told NBC News on Wednesday.

More than 8,000 guests aboard the ship will receive a refund because of the outbreak, said the spokesman.

“We think the right thing to do is to get everyone home early rather than have guests worry about their health,” he added “Returning on Saturday also gives us more time to completely clean and sanitize the ship before her next sailing.”

MSC Cruises

The U.S. Coast Guard has suspended its search for Thomas McElhany, 26,  who went overboard about 35 miles south of Islamorada.

The Coast Guard said crews searched for 32 hours and covered 2,086 square miles.

Cmdr. David Aldous, Coast Guard 7th District search and rescue mission coordinator said “I have been in contact with members of Mr. McElhany’s family throughout our search efforts and know this is a very difficult and painful time for them.”

 “Suspending a search is one of the most difficult decisions we have to make as first responders, and it is never made lightly.”

Carnival Cruise Line Increasing Drink Gratuities

MSC Cruises

According to the Carnival Cruise Line website, they are increasing automatic gratuities on drinks (both alcohol and non-alcohol) from 15% to 18%.

1.5% will go to the Carnival server and the remaining 1.5% will go into a pool to fund Carnival expenses

Carnival Cruise Line memo

The letter dated November 29, 2018 reads,

“We are pleased to announce effective on sailings starting on or after December 1st, the automatic gratuity added to the guests’ check for all beverage sales and a la carte dining outlets will increase from 15% to 18%. In addition the extra tip line will remain on all the guests’ checks. This enables our guests to add any additional extra gratuity they deem appropriate. This increase will reflect your first paycheck of December 2018.

From this 3% increase, 1.5% will go to server and remaining 1.5% will go into the ASP pool. As you know the ASP pool funds employee compensation and benefit programs that you receive; including bar level pay, itinerary stipend pay, as well as free uniform and return airline tickets.

Our Bartenders and Bar Waiters lead the cruise industry in compensation. This is a result on everyone’s hard work and efforts to increase overall bar sales as well as the success of the Working Smarter program. As we look forward to 2019, we expect this trend to continue and this will ensure that Carnival Cruise Line remains the employer of choice.

As you know the Beverage Team plays a vital role in creating Fun Memorable Vacations for our guests. I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your Positive Attitude and for the Pride you show in our company.”

Carnival Cruise Ship Malfunctions, Causes Chaos And Panic

MSC Cruises

The Carnival Sunshine listed badly to its side for a few hours after leaving port Sunday evening.

Passengers received a note from the captain saying  “an electrical switchboard malfunction impacted the use of the fin stabilizers.”

Passengers on board tweeted about the unnerving incident.

  @Daviesgravey tweeted  “Last night was a very scary experience on the Sunshine,” and  “The starboard side literally felt like it lifted. I was in the dining room on 3. All the tables slid and fell over, glass falling and breaking. People screaming. And all we get is, ‘It’s being investigated.’”
