When the Carnival Triumph cruise ship docks early this morning at the Port of Miami, it will do so with 17 fewer passengers than it had a few days ago -- Cuban refugees picked up at sea near the Cayman Islands earlier this week.
The 11 men and six women will be turned over to the U.S. Coast Guard in international waters before the ship returns, said Carnival Cruise Lines spokeswoman Jennifer de la Cruz.
''That's normally what we're instructed to do and I have not heard anything that is different in this case,'' said de la Cruz, who was not sure when during the week they were rescued.
''They were at sea and they required assistance,'' de la Cruz said.
The Cubans will be repatriated by the Coast Guard, as called for by the 1995 wet foot/dry foot policy that followed the 1994 exodus from the Communist-ruled island, said Coast Guard spokesman Dana Warr. Normal procedures will be followed, Warr said[/img]
