Carnival Valor Rescues Sailors From Sinking Yacht In St. Marteen

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts


The Carnival Valor rescued five people from a sinking yacht off St. Maarten on Saturday, Dec. 21.

The ship, which was sailing to a port call on the island, responded to a radio distress call from the craft, which was sinking in stormy weather. The Valor lowered a lifeboat to rescue the sailors, two women and three men. They were brought aboard the ship and given medical evaluations, along with food and water.

The cruise line said in a statement that two deck officers received minor injuries during the rescue.

After the rescue, the ship continued to St. Maarten, its next scheduled port. The San Juan-based Valor was on the last leg of a seven-day Southern Caribbean sailing that had departed on Dec. 15.
