MIAMI -- Two cruise
lines performed rescues-at-sea in the Gulf of Mexico last weekend.
Line said its Norwegian Sea rescued four men who had been clinging
to a capsized fishing boat for 12 days. The men, who departed from
Honduras Aug. 8, drifted about 520 nautical miles through the
Yucatan Strait after their boat capsized. The Sea, which was en
route from Houston to Cozumel, Mexico, rescued the men Aug.
Meanwhile, on Aug.
21, the Carnival Holiday rescued five people, including a
10-year-old boy, after their boat caught fire and capsized off the
coast of Cancun, Mexico. Carnival said the Holiday was en route to
New Orleans when employees reported hearing someone yell from the
