We received a report earlier this evening from a gentlemen currently sailing on a 5-Night Western Caribbean cruise aboard the Disney Wonder. According to his report, the Disney Wonder came to the aid of a makeshift raft carrying a group of about 6 Cuban refugees on Wednesday night April 16, 2014. According to a later report the rescue occurred approximately 10 miles off the coast if Key West, Florida. The Disney Wonder was sailing at sea on Wednesday as she was sailing between Cozumel and Castaway Cay.
Shortly after the group boarded the Disney Wonder, they were handed off to the US Coast Guard.
Just over a year ago, the Disney Wonder came to the aid of eight Cuban refugees approximately 45 miles south of Key West, Fl.
We will update this article if any additional details become available.
Correction Six, not seven men were rescued.
