A Carninval Cruise Line ship rescued two dozen people who had problems with water on Saturday.
The Carnival Sensation helped a small boat in distress in international waters just 37 miles off the coast of Palm Beach, Carnival said.
The sensation came on the side of the boat and provided the riding blankets, life jackets, water and food. When their boat started to fetch water, Sense rescued all 24 people and brought them.
The survivors are from different nationalities and include two children. The team was examined on the cruise ship by a medical team and then quarantined away from the crew aboard the Sense.
Carnival Cruise Line ships do not operate and have only a small crew aboard.
Later, the U.S. Coast Guard rescued 24 people from the cruise ship.
