Amver cruise ship Eurodam rescues 7 migrants

The Amver participating cruise ship Eurodam rescued seven Cuban migrants from a rustic raft approximately 130 miles north of Grand Cayman on Thursday, November 12, 2015.

The Holland America Line ship alerted U.S. Coast Guard rescue personnel in Miami that they located the raft with six male and one female Cuban migrant and launched a fast boat to embark all seven. The cruise ship reported one of the survivors was suffering chicken pox and was receiving treatment in the infirmary.

The Eurodam was coordinating with Coast Guard officials in Jamaica and their agent in Grand Cayman to transfer the survivors to authorities on shore.

The Eurodam enrolled in Amver on September 10, 2008 and has earned seven Amver participation awards.
