This morning I received a message from a passenger on the Coral Princess that the Princess Cruises cruise ship picked up 7 Cuban migrants in a small make-shift boat.
The photo sent to me showed what appeared to be at least one man in distress lying on his back near the bow of the boat.
Here’s the message which I received:
"Coral princess just rescued 7 cubans on a damaged small boat off the coast of cuba…we are on our way back to FL with 7 cubans on board."
Usually cruise ships which take Cuban migrants aboard deliver them to a Coast Guard vessel and the migrants are returned to Cuba.
