The crew of Vision of the Seas sent food and water to all of the migrants and then transported them to a nearby Greek island via a tender boat.  The cruise ship then continued on to its next port of call in Kusadasi, Turkey.

Vision of the Seas is currently on a 12 night sailing to the Mediterranean Greek Isles that departed out of Barcelona, Spain on August 20.  The cruise ship has two more scheduled stops, Santorini, Greece and Salerno, Italy, before heading back to Barcelona on September 1.

The crew members who reported this good deed wish to remain anonymous. Photo Credit: Cruise Law News

  1. I’m on that ship right now and this happened earlier this morning, it was a very weird experience. We all thought that someone had fallen overboard. When i looked out my balcony, after hearing the captain come on the p.a, i saw a tiny raft floating 1-2km away flickering sos with a flash light. Very scary and sad experience for these poor people
