Coast Guard Sector New Orleans watchstanders received a report at 6:20 am that a 53-year-old passenger was suffering from stroke-like symptoms aboard the cruise ship, operated by Miami-based cruise company Carnival Corporation.

A Coast Guard Air Station MH-65 Dolphin helicopter aircrew was sent to the site, followed by a Coast Guard Aviation Training Center Mobile HC-144 Ocean Sentry aircrew.
