    I just checked the Port Canaveral Webcam and noticed this. I am very interested in finding out what’s going on.

    Yes me too. I’m on the ship. They said ‘medical emergency ‘ but we do not believe that since we had a boat escorting us.

    Responding to the medical evacuation on April 6th. I was the father to the 6 year old that had been removed and transported to the hospital. During the sail away party my daughter started to experience thirst, heat flashes, and constant urination. We believed it to be the change in weather from Chicago, but the symptoms became more persistent right after the party. We decided to visit the medical team, where we then discovered her glucose to be 628. No previous condition, this was all discovered on the boat and was told from the medical team that my daughter was Type I diabetic.

    To say the least, our vacation turned from enjoy to nightmare, as the rest of our week was spent in hospitals. Please make note that the crew and cast members on board the Fantasy really did rise to the occasion. They did everything to service our family in a time of crisis, and we did appreciate the way they handled the situation. They really did make an unbelievable effort and we could not thank them enough in their efforts and response.
