Silhouette in Miami?


Recommended Posts

Noticed that. Onboard Silhouette now, they have said it’s  a medical evac, but here we sit for at least an hour, so that doesn’t add up. Had a medical evac last night while underway and that was a typical 5- minute pause.  


There are still a couple police cars on the pier so something going on, but looking outside the cruise bubble hoping for a clue.  Funny how that works.

Captain just said two of our guests had a medical emergency during the night, forcing us to return to port. No flu issues involved. Says we’re now waiting for arriving traffic to depart. Would be a far better explanation but still doesn’t fully add up. We’ll just hope for the best.

Captain just repeated earlier announcement - 2 passengers required medical attention, we’re  waiting for traffic to clear to depart.  Will update on itinerary soon. ( was ABC & Caymans) would explain the situation if there was any traffic in sight.

Omg we are on this ship too! We heard the “Star code” announcement last night for deck 5! That is awful! 
We also saw someone having what seemed to be a seizure at dinner last night. Perhaps they were taken off as well.

A body bag has just been taken off the ship and a crime scene set up. Looks like it was a fall onto a lifeboat. Just watched a live video from someone onboard. 

Where is the video posted?

Arriving traffic might not be visible from the ship and be further out. Probably had to wait for a pilot to be available.


In terms of the incident, unless an official statement is released, we'll probably never know beyond "medical emergency", which if the description is accurate, would definitely qualify. Thoughts to the person's family.

We are deeply saddened by the tragic incident involving a guest aboard the Silhouette, and our hearts go out the family and loved ones. This incident was not related to COVID-19.
Our security team is assisting authorities in their investigation as our care team continues to provide support for the families.

On our last Edge cruise there was someone taken to the local jail...


We would not have know without talking to people while waiting in line to reboard in port.


I think that jail incidents on cruises are more common than people would like to admit.


Celebrity security does seem to hande the incidents in a professional mannner.
