The cruise ship, which was which was just over 150 nautical miles from Grand Cayman requested the assistance of the CICG in transporting a patient to the closest emergency medical facility for treatment.

The ORCC successfully coordinated the response between CICG patrol vessel Mark Luke and the cruise liner Marella Discovery 2, which resulted in the patient and his wife being safely transferred from the ship to the Royal Walter Terminal, in George Town. The CICG team were met by the Emergency Medical Service (EMS), who then transported the man and his wife to the Cayman Islands Hospital by ambulance.
