At the end of the letter “Unexpected Disembarkation” (June '20, pg. 25), Pamela Zent wrote, “From ITN readers, I would really just like to know if other couples on a cruise have found themselves in a predicament where one member was in the hospital and the other had to pack up and leave. What assistance did the ship's staff offer the wife or husband in getting off the ship and on their way?”
