    The ship immediately began search and rescue operations and located the woman. She was brought on board and treated at the ship's medical center.

    Ship physicians determined the woman needed further treatment at a shoreside facility and the Destiny deviated its course to Key West instead of Ocho Rios, Jamaica.

    The ship, which is on a five-day Caribbean cruise, is scheduled to return on Thursday.
