Helicopter Medical Evacuation from Freedom of the Seas

Good morning,

Today's images are of another helicopter medical evacuation from Labadee, a port of call of Freedom of the Seas.
Since the ship is tied up, the helicopter landed on the dock walkway to the island.
The ship's fire teams were at the ready should there be any problem near the ship.

The ship has a helipad on the bow, but since we are tied up, it is safer for the helicopter to land on the dock walkway.
Taking off....

 The patient is on the way to a hospital for more intensive care than can be provided on the ship.
 It's wonderful that we can enjoy travel, yet still be able to access medical care as necessary.

All the best,

Hotels in St. Thomas, USVI

Good morning,

This image was taken in St. Thomas, USVI, from the deck of Freedom of the Seas

I remember when there were very few buildings out there on the "point."  Now there are beautiful hotels. That's the Marriott on the right. 

Gorgeous view from that hotel!

Sea Plane - St. Thomas, USVI

Good morning,

While out walking the deck a sea plane took off very close to our ship, Freedom of the Seas.  We were tied up in St. Thomas, USVI.
What a beautiful day to go flying.  I don't know if this particular plane is a tour plane or transportation between islands.
