HONOLULU - The Regal Princess Cruise was traveling Turks and Caicos when the ship spotted a raft with two men on it.
A small plane has gone down nearby, and the cruise was the closes ship to them. Members aboard the ship noticed two men who were badly sunburned after sitting in the water for so long.
A passenger on the cruise, Julienne Schaeffer, posted pictures to Facebook writing, "Interesting day yesterday. Having lunch on board when the captain calmly announces man over board and for crew to report to their stations!"
The rescue was successful, and the ship invited the two men aboard the ship. Passengers said they saw the two and the main bar.
"Our ship gained a couple passengers. It was so amazing to watch it all," said Schaeffer
