A passenger aboard the Disney Wonder sent a couple of photographs of the boat "rescued" between Cuba and South Florida.
As we mentioned yesterday, the Disney Wonder and the Carnival Conquest cruise ships were involved in separate incidents where they picked up Cuban nationals who had set out to sea to try and escape Cuba and get here to the U.S.
Carnival released a number of photos of the rubber boat which the Conquest responded to which we posted in our earlier blog article.
The photos below of the wooden little boat were taken by a passenger Darrin Heath who is aboard the Wonder with his family.
Photos like this seems sad to me. The boat was filled with people with their hopes and dreams of a better life here. Now they are floating at sea empty. And the people once aboard will return to Cuba.
