Cruise Ship Rescues 12 Cuban Migrants in the Caribbean

MIAMI A cruise ship in the Caribbean rescued 12 Cuban migrants this weekend, took them on board and later handed them over to authorities in the Cayman Islands, the U.S. Coast Guard told EFE on Monday.

The Disney Wonder was sailing from Miami to Grand Cayman last Saturday when a flimsy boat was spotted south of Cuba, CNN reported.

Earlier in the month, Cayman Islands authorities reported that more than 120 Cubans had landed on its territory so far this year.

The same ship, the Disney Wonder, with its capacity for some 3,500 people including passengers and crew, rescued another group of eight immigrants south of Key West, Florida, in 2013.

More than 17,000 Cuban immigrants reached the U.S. in the last three months of 2015, almost double the number that landed in the same period the year before.
