While sailing from Gibraltar to Barcelona, the Disney Magic rescued 18 people who were adrift at sea.

Disboards member poohmomof5 posted that she is currently onboard the Magic and shared the following:
I'm onboard the Magic right now and Captian John came on at about noon today and announced that at 3:45am this morning, the Magic rec'd a SOS call stating that a nearby ship heard screams in the water. The ship then commenced rescue operations and found 18 Algierians who had been lost at sea for 4-5 days. They are onboard now and are recieving food and water and healthcare.
We contacted Disney Cruise Line and they provided us with this statement:

While sailing from Gibraltar to Barcelona, the Disney Magic rescued 18 people who were aboard a small boat that had lost power. The boat was located by the Disney Magic crew members around 3:45 a.m. today, and the people were brought aboard the ship and provided with food and staterooms.

We are proud of the Disney Magic crew members, who skillfully demonstrated their training and commitment to maritime protocols around saving lives at sea. We have notified authorities in Barcelona of this rescue, and they are coordinating the debarkation of the group and other details.
Last September, the Disney Wonder rescued a man who had jumped overboard from a Carnival ship in the Caribbean.
