We have witnessed three evacuations on different cruises. One was a turn back to San Juan. They took someone by tender and we watched as the ambulance took her/him away. The other two were evacuated by the U.S. Coast Guard helicopters. That was an awesome sight as they circled three times scoping out all the guide wires, then lowering the basket for a nurse and then the patient. I really never looked at documents to see if we were insured in case of evacuation.
