Update: Cruise ship assisting sailors in distress near Bermuda

Celebrity EQUINOXImage by Harry-Harms via FlickrThe Amver participating cruise ship Celebrity Equinox rendezvoused with four German sailors aboard the sailboat Lady Freda and passed along diesel fuel to close out a dramatic rescue situation unfolding since late Friday May 8, 2011 850 miles east of Bermuda. The German yachtsmen then continued on their journey.

The Celebrity Equinox, owned by Royal Caribbean, enrolled in the Amver system July 27, 2010.

Rescue coordination centers can always request Amver data from the United States Coast Guard, the process is easy.
