Yesterday, August 5, the Disney Magic made an emergency stop during its 10-night Mediterranean cruise. While traveling from Sicily to Palma, Majorca, flares were spotted launched by the refugees and the large vessel altered course immediately. 11 men were discovered stranded on a tiny vessel 70 miles south of Sardinia.

The Disney Magic crew contacted the Italian Coast Guard and then held its position 4 hours until help arrived. The refugees shouted their thanks to the Disney Magic as the coast guard arrived to rescue them.
