Loss of life on Atlantis Occasions Tremendous Spreader of the Seas Cruise

In the present day, we acquired phrase {that a} visitor attending the Atlantis Occasions cruise aboard the Oasis of the Sea died Monday night time because the Royal Caribbean cruise ship was heading to Mexico. This afternoon, reporter Chris Wiggins tweeted information of the demise. He additionally reported on a number of “Code Alpha” (medical emergency) bulletins broadcast on the ship.

Medical emergencies (typically drug overdoses) are usually not unusual on Royal Caribbean cruises chartered by Atlantis Occasions. For that matter, Atlantis Occasions cruises have been tormented by drug use, passengers going overboard and shipboard deaths through the years. We touched on a few of these occasions in our article earlier this week:

Tremendous Spreader of the Seas – Atlantis Occasions Makes a Mockery of COVID-19 Protocols

In January 2020, a member of the Atlantis technical crew went overboard from the Oasis of the Seas.

In February 2019, federal brokers arrested two males making an attempt to board the Attract of the Seas at PortMiami for possession of a giant amount of medication which they had been meaning to promote on the cruise ship which had been chartered to Atlantis Occasions. Native Information 10  reported that after the lads arrived at PortMiami, a drug sniffing canine alerted its handler to their baggage which contained MDMA (ecstasy), ketamine, Viagra, Adderall and GHB.

In January 2018, Storm Chasers’ star Joel Taylor died of a suspected overdose on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship, Concord of the Seas, which had been chartered by Atlantis Occasions. In response to TMZ and different tabloid web sites, passengers on the Royal Caribbean ship acknowledged that “medicine on the get together boat had been plentiful.” Rosie Spinks, a gifted reporter who labored for Quartz at the moment, reported on Mr. Taylor’s drug demise in an article titled A Actuality Star’s Loss of life Uncovered the Harmful Celebration Tradition on Homosexual Cruises.

In February 2012, an Atlantis Occasions attendee went overboard from the Attract of the Seas operated by Royal Caribbean. His physique was by no means recovered and he’s presumed to be useless. There was no clear indication that the overboard was instantly associated to drug use on the ship.

Shortly earlier than the Royal Caribbean/Atlantis twentieth Anniversary cruise in February 2011, I questioned Is Royal Caribbean Prepared for Medical Emergencies Throughout the World’s Largest Homosexual Cruise?  I requested why Royal Caribbean tolerated the widespread use of medication on its ships throughout Atlantis Occasions cruise events.

Every week later,  cruise passenger, Barry Krumholz, was arrested for promoting giant portions of ecstasy tablets, methamphetamine, ketamine and different medicine aboard the Royal Caribbean Attract of the Seas chartered by Atlantis Occasions. There have been reportedly a half-dozen drug overdoses through the cruise.

In 2010, there was one other passenger demise on the Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas which had been chartered to Atlantis Occasions. There was widespread dialogue relating to using medicine throughout Atlantis Occasions sponsored occasions.

In 2009, a passenger died after he reportedly took medicine throughout a cruise aboard a Royal Caribbean cruise ship which had been chartered for using Atlantis Occasions. Spencer Yu, an legal professional for Warner Brothers and a board member of the Homosexual and Lesbian Alliance In opposition to Defamation (“GLAAD”), died on the Mariner of the Seas. The medical care was described by get together goers as delayed and haphazard.

In 2019, Atlantis Occasions modified it insurance policies apparently based mostly on the demise of Joel Taylor on the the Concord of the Seas. Atlantis employed its personal medical group. Its trip information on the time acknowledged that it’s going to have medically-related personnel at its cruise get together. At web page 14 of its web site beneath “Security at Sea” it acknowledged:

“Our new Care Crew is right here to assist! In any respect our events and occasions you’ll discover a group of devoted medical professionals right here to help with completely something.

The present Royal Caribbean / Atlantis Occasions Cruise Trip Information – thirtieth Anniversary Caribbean Cruise brochure doesn’t embrace language just like the phrases and situation in its 2019 brochure relating to using medical personnel organized by Atlantis Occasions. Nonetheless, one commentator, Will Kohler, means that Atlantis continues to be utilizing its personal medical employees for get together goers who turn out to be unwell on the ship.

Whether or not the medical personnel had been employed by Atlantis or Royal Caribbean, cruise ships are usually not the place to have a medical emergency, whether or not you might be homosexual, lesbian, transgendered, or straight.  Cruise ships are are infamous for the questionable expertise and coaching of the shipboard docs and employees and the restricted nature of the cruise ship’s medical amenities.
