Maltese-Registered Cruise Ship Rescues Six Boaters Going From St. Thomas To St. Croix

MV ZENITH CRUISE SHIP TO THE RESCUE! The cruise ship rescued boaters going from St. Thomas to St. Croix.

The U.S. Coast Guard says a cruise ship helped authorities rescue six men who were stranded in rough seas near the territory.

Authorities said that the men were aboard three boats when two of them ran out of gas and one capsized.

The Coast Guard said it rescued one boater on Monday while the crew of the MV Zenith cruise ship rescued three more and a good Samaritan rescued two others.

Authorities said they received a call for help late Sunday for the boaters who were traveling from the island of St. Thomas to St. Croix.

The Coast Guard said the three men rescued by the cruise ship crew joined them for the trip to the Dutch Caribbean island of Sint Maarten.

MV Zenith is a cruise ship owned by the Spain-based shipping company Pullmantur Cruises. It is registered in Malta.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
