Disney Save The Day And Act Fast To Rescue Passenger Gone Overboard

Disney Save The Day And Act Fast To Rescue Passenger Gone Overboard

A passenger has been rescued after going overboard Disney Dream on the evening of May 4th.

The Disney team saved the day, launching an immediate rescue to save the man from the water when the man went overboard as the ship was at sea on Thursday evening.

Reports have stated that multiple passengers onboard saw a Coast Guard airplane fly pass and the ship slowed down and circled, supporting the overboard situation in which a cruise ship will backtrack their route in hope of finding a person missing at sea.

The rescue operation reportedly took less than an hour and the man was immediately given medical attention in the ship’s medical centre, although the cause of the unidentified passenger going overboard is unknown at this time.

The incident happened just west of Grand Bahama Island where Disney Dream was returning to Port Canaveral during a four night cruise to the Bahamas, following a stop in Nassau and the cruise line’s private island, Castaway Cay.

Compliments have been given to the Disney Dream crew members for their efficiency and competency during the emergency.

Disney Cruise Line is well known for its automatic man overboard system which automatically alerts the bridge when a passenger goes overboard, whilst two years ago Disney Magic rescued a passenger who had gone overboard from Oasis of the Seas.


What are your thoughts on today’s news? Are you impressed with Disney’s fast work on rescuing the passenger? What would you like to say to the line following this incident if you could? Do you think anything could be improved with other cruise lines’ rescue operation when a guest goes overboard?
