A passenger aboard the P&O Cruises-owned MV Arcadia was medically evacuated in the early morning hours of March 4 as the ship was sailing off the coast of Guam.

The medical evacuation was carried out by the U.S. Navy’s Guam-based helicopter crews.

According to the navy, the passenger in distress was recovered via helicopter hoist and returned to U.S. Naval Hospital Guam in stable condition.

The Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 25 was notified by U.S. Coast Guard Sector Guam that a passenger aboard the Fincantieri-built cruiser was experiencing a medical emergency. After Arcadia transited within helicopter range of Guam, a rescue mission was launched at 5:45 a.m. Monday.
