On its way back home to Tampa this weekend, Carnival Paradise received notification of a small boat sinking 13 miles off the coast of Cozumel. In the tradition of the sea of assisting other mariners in distress, the ship turned back to the small boat's location north of Cozumel.
Once there, it spotted the boat and put a rescue boat in the water. It picked up the single man aboard the boat and brought him back to Carnival Paradise.
Details appeared in the May 20 edition of Cruise News Daily.
