Continuing a longstanding tradition of assisting mariners in distress, Carnival Paradise came to the aid of the operator of a small boat that was sinking. While en route back to its homeport of Tampa, Carnival Paradise was alerted of a small craft in distress with one person in the water while the ship was 13 miles north of Cozumel.

Carnival Paradise reversed course, lowered a rescue boat, brought the mariner onboard and provided food, water and medical treatment.

Carnival Paradise personnel coordinated with Mexican authorities to transfer the mariner, a Mexican national, to a ferry boat and take him ashore. He was found in good condition.

Carnival Paradise was on a four-day cruise to the Western Caribbean from Tampa at the time of the rescue.
