An injured passenger on the Doral, Florida-based Carnival Cruise Lines’ Carnival Fantasy cruise ship was evacuated by a Charleston County emergency medical services response team and members of the Charleston Fire Department of South Carolina shortly after the ship left the Charleston port for a Bahamas cruise, WCSC reported on August 14.

Carnival spokesperson Aly Bello said they returned to the terminal after departing so that an injured passenger could debark; the passenger was transported to a shore-side medical facility for the treatment of his injuries. The ship’s five-day itinerary remained on schedule.

Doral, Florida-based cruise line Carnival Cruise Lines recently signed an agreement with Tampa brewery Cigar City Brewing to offer only Cigar City beer on its Florida-based cruise ships, the Tampa Bay Times reported on July 14.

The deal was made public at an event sponsored by Carnival Legend at the Port of Tampa. With selections like the Florida Cracker Belgian-Style White Ale and the Invasion Pale Ale, this deal seeks to capitalize on the general growing affinity people feel toward craft beer. This agreement is the largest of its kind; the 13 Carnival cruise ships take 2 million passengers on board every year.
