And that other ship probobly didn't have good search and rescue training like the Disney ships do. Remember when the carnival passenger fell everboard and Carnival was too unprepared to help him and disney had a life boat out in the water almost imediately and to find him at night they told everyone on the ship to be quiet so they could hear the mans screams. That is true Disney MAGIC!

That's kinda true. When the wonder rescued somebody the news mainly featured that Carnival couldn't rescue it's own passenger.

That's wonderful!

Can you imagine how surreal it must feel to the rescued people? One minute you're in a leaky dingy old fishing boat, and a then you're on a luxury cruise ship with a bunch of kids and a giant mouse. Especially if you didn't know much about Disney, it must be a very strange sight indeed!

Hearing people in the water and being able to rescue them are 2 totally different subjects.It all comes down to luck.The other ship may have heard them, but couldnt see them, even though they were looking.Its tough to find someone at night in the ocean by sound.Especially if there are any type of waves.I work for an FD, and we had a similar situation in a lake.It took us a few minutes to pin down where the person was, and I was standing on shore with a light, before we pinned his location down to be able to go get him with the boat.

We were on the Magic years ago on a caribbean cruise and we had to stop to offer aid to a very small rowboat that had 4 or 5 adult men and young boy. It was very sad to see them bobbing around in the boat with tattered clothing but because of Coast Guard regulations (we were told) we could not bring them aboard. We tied up to the rowboat and CM's were tossing water and food in their boat but we had to wait for the CG to come. When CG ship came the refugees got very nervous and were jumping in the water to get away. They were picked up the CG vessel and we brought the rowboat onboard. It was sad as we heard that they had fled Cuba and were lost at seas without supplies for a few days and were most likely now headed back there.

MJ
The short version as I understand it, is that due to relations with Cuba, if a Cuban refugee is found at sea, they are to be returned to Cuba.If they touch land (I dont know if a ship qualifies) then they are allowed to say.Which explains why they jump when a CG cutter comes on scene.

I was on the Wonder when we picked up Carnivals MOB.It didnt have anything to do with Carnival being unprepared.It had more to do with the way the Wonder came on to the scene, as we were closer.It was easier for us to pick him up then the Carnival.If Carnival had issues, it was more mechanical then incompetence/training. All ships, that depart US waters, must pass the same training standards from the US Coast Guard.They must also train a certain number of times of year, as part of the SOLAS regulations.

I echo this comment. How weird and lucky at the same time. Kinda puts things in perspective.

Well done Disney Magic!!
