“Princess Cruises can confirm that upon request from the U.S. Coast Guard Regal Princess assisted in the rescue of two U.S. citizens whose private aircraft had gone down southeast of Grand Turk in the Caribbean Sea,” Princess Cruises spokesperson Negin Kamali said in a statement.
“Both people rescued sailed onboard Regal Princess as the ship sailed to the next port of call St. Thomas. Regal Princess arrived in St. Thomas yesterday. Regal Princess is on day four of a seven-day Caribbean cruise.”
Cruise-ship rescues aren’t really uncommon. A Royal Caribbean cruise ship rescued two sailors who were stranded at sea for several weeks in December.
The ship originally departed from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
