Everyone knows that cruise ships are pleasure vessels. What many do not realize is that they can be called upon to perform rescue operations. This is exactly what happened yesterday (Sunday, July 29) when the Princess Cruise Line ship Sea Princess rescued 3 sailers in the Caribbean.
The Sea Princess was on her way to Willemstad en route to the Panama Canal. Although there was a short delay in arriving at Willemstad, saving three individuals lives is worth a slight detour.
