Cruise Ship Departs Newcastle After Unexpected Overnight Stay

The Radiance of the Seas cruise ship has spent an unscheduled night in Newcastle thanks to rough seas.

Eight-metre swells forced the ship to delay its departure yesterday afternoon.

The crew also had to respond to a medical emergency, with an elderly passenger taken to John Hunter Hospital in a critical condition suffering a suspected heart attack.

The ship left just after 6:00am Wednesday bound for Airlie Beach.
