Arcadia leaving Cadiz 2015

Arcadia has suffered another delay in its passage to Funchal, but this time the cause isn’t technical. The ship had to divert to Vigo for a passenger medical emergency. I have no information about the nature of the emergency but of course I hope that the passenger involved recovers.

I gather that this wasn’t the first medical emergency on this voyage – I read somewhere that another passenger had to be taken off the ship while it was still in Southampton. Could it be that world cruises attract an older and frailer passenger demographic? I don’t know – I’ve never been on one – but it seems possible. Or is that just assumption?

According to Marine Traffic, Arcadia is now expected at Funchal at 10:15 tomorrow morning.
