A Carnival cruise ship made a rescue of 16 Cuban nationals Sunday in the Caribbean Sea.

The Cubans were stranded on a makeshift raft just south of western Cuba.

The Carnival Glory, on its way to Grand Cayman Island from Miami, stopped to helped the Cubans.

Crew members from the cruise ship loaded the migrants onto life boats and took them aboard, providing water, food and clothing.

Carnival Glory resumed its course to Grand Cayman and arrived Monday. The Cuban nationals were transferred to local authorities.

According to the cruise company, the rescue effort continues Carnival’s longstanding practice of assisting distressed mariners and vessels at sea.
