The 1,112-foot Liberty of the Seas, a Miami, Florida-based Royal Caribbean International vessel, was forced to return to port in Bermuda just hours after the ship left that same port when a 74-year-old passenger was injured.
According to the Department of Marine and Ports website, Meyer’s Agency got in touch with the Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre to inform them that the Liberty of the Seas would be returning to Bermuda.
According to a spokesman, the ship had already travelled 60 miles south towards St. Maarten when the injured woman, who had hurt her hip, told cruise officials that she needed to be hospitalized for her injuries.
