Carnival Jubilee rescues stranded kayakers in Gulf of Mexico

The two men in a kayak were picked up off the coast of Isla Mujeres, Mexico
Carnival Jubilee rescued two men who were stranded in a kayak in the Gulf of Mexico after their boat sank, and they used the kayak to stay afloat.

Crew spotted the men off the coast of Isla Mujeres, Mexico and quickly brought them aboard to be evaluated by the ship's medical staff and given first aid and food.

The Galveston-based ship and Carnival Cruise Line's Fleet Operation Center staff in Miami kept in close contact with Mexican Navy officials and arranged to transfer the men shortly after their rescue.

Carnival Jubilee then proceeded with its regular schedule and is set to visit Mahogany Bay, Roatán on Tuesday.
