A literal headline. Straightforward and simple.
USA Today reports that over the weekend, Disney's newest cruise ship, Fantasy, rescued four Cuban nationals on a small raft near Key West, Fla. The men needed medical attention, were signaling for help and were presumably stranded. The Fantasy scooped them up, gave them immediate medical attention and continued on its way to ports of call in Mexico--saving lives and not disrupting the overall itinerary!
"We are proud of our Disney Fantasy crew members, who skillfully demonstrated their training and commitment to maritime protocols around saving lives at sea," Disney Cruise Line said in a statement.
This was such a welcoming story, following news earlier this month that a man has filed suit alleging a Princess Cruise Line Ship ignored his stranded friends off the coast of Panama and left them to die.
The care for maritime law and respect for human life displayed by the Fantasy crew is worthy of a shout-out on this humble blog.
