“guess that disney magic is real.”

On September 3, 2009, the Disney Wonder rescued a man from the Atlantic Ocean near Florida at around 12:45 am. The 34-year-old man had jumped overboard from a Carnival Cruise Line ship after allegedly arguing with a woman, and the nearby Disney Wonder diverted its course to rescue him. A Disney rescue boat was then sent to retrieve the man, who had been treading water for about an hour, and brought him back to the Disney Wonder. The cruise ship brought him back to Port Canaveral, where he was taken to a hospital for a physical and mental evaluation.

August 6, 2010 – The Disney Magic Cruise Ship Saves 18 People Lost at Sea

Disney Magic

“The shipboard team heard crew members from two other vessels talking on the radio…the Disney Magic then joined the search and quickly spotted the small boat, which had lost power.”

On August 6, 2010, the crew aboard the Disney Magic cruise ship made the news for saving 18 Algerians who had been considered lost at sea almost five days prior. The Algerians had been voyaging in the Mediterranean, when their ship had lost power. The Disney Magic had heard the situation over the radio as they were sailing between Gibraltar and Barcelona, and spotted the ship. The crew managed to take the survivors onboard and give them meals and cabins, taking them to the final destination of Barcelona.
