We found out on our cruise last week that all cruise ships have to rescue any Cubans at sea. If not then they can be fined big time.

It is good that they do but of course any that are rescued are sent back to Cuba.

You gotta know how "great" things are in Cuba, if there's still people willing to risk their lives in rafts crossing, hoping to reach America.
