BREAKING: Friendship’s maiden voyage forced to turn back to port due to medical emergency aboard ship
Destructo‘s new floating festival concept, Friendship, has already experienced some choppy waters as the event’s maiden voyage gets underway. Less than 24 hours into the ship’s first sailing, The Celebrity Equinox was forced to return to Miami due to a medical emergency aboard the boat. The boat, headed for private island Coco Cay, made an unannounced turnaround, which is seemingly due to it making more logistic sense to return to port than to have the coast guard fly out into open water.
The nature of the medical emergency on board is still unclear, though unsubstantiated reports claim a broken elbow and a heart attack could be the reasons behind the ships return. As of publishing, Friendship representatives have not returned a request for comment, though Port Miami has confirmed that the ship had docked and has once again set sail for Coco Cay. Boys Noize, Dixon, RÜFÜS DU SOL, and more are slated to perform on Friendship’s debut sailing. Stay tuned for updates.
Medical emergency. Ship has already left Terminal G.
