The 30th Anniversary voyage of RSVP's Caribbean Cruise had to make an emergency stop in the port of Miami today. Reports coming in from friends on the cruise are that there was a drug overdose on board. One report is that two people overdosed last night and collapsed on the dance floor. As stated this is has not been released by RSVP (they could not be reached for a comment), but reports from friends are that one did not survive. Once again, these are not confirmed as of yet, but the ship did come back to Miami today due to a medical emergency. We do wish the best for all.
From a friend today, "Adam, they just made an announcement this morning that there was a medical emergency and we were heading to Miami." Others stated the cruise ship was escorted back to harbor by two helicopters and a US Coast Guard ship.
We will let you know when we hear more.
