  • On her Eastern Mediterranean cruise, ms Aurora experienced major Norovirus outbreak (500+ passengers). Guests were denied disembarkation in Piraeus (Athens) where Aurora was held in quarantine (the ship left port on 31 October with medical supplies being loaded). Sick passengers were also denied disembarkation in Dubrovnik, Croatia and in Gibraltar (UK). One passenger died from heart attack (not related to the virus outbreak). Spain decided to close the Gibraltar-Spain border for a few hours while Aurora was docked in Gibraltar, causing diplomatic tension between Spain and UK.

  • On the fatal date, ms Aurora was located ~80 ml south of NYC and ~20 ml east of Atlantic City NJ. A conference was hosted on board (major IT firms executives private  charter, departing NYC on Sept 9). After the attacks, USCG helicopters and marine vessels were guarding the ship due to safety reasons. Instead stopping in NYC (Manhattan Pier 53 terminal), Aurora sailed to Boston MA for passenger disembarkation.

  • On the Aurora’s first World Cruise and while sailing through Taiwan Strait, the ship was called to help ms Pamela Dream ship (Cambodian vessel) capsized in rough seas (5m / 16ft waves).
