Carnival Cruise Line's ship Carnival Legend has responded to a call for help from a small boat (catamaran) that had run out of fuel off the coast of Bahamas.

The liner has delivered 25 gallons of fuel to the crew of the stranded boat in order to make its way back to the port of Jacksonville (JAXPORT, Florida).

Carnival’s brand ambassador, John Heald, shared Carnival Legend's crew response to the call for help on his Facebook page.

John Heald said their pause in sailing guests did not mean they paused their "obligations as seafarers to help others in distress."

He added that on Tuesday, June 30, while Carnival Legend had been off the coast of The Bahamas, their great crew had "responded to a call for help from a small boat that had run out of fuel."

"Carnival Legend rendezvoused with the small craft and delivered 25 gallons of diesel fuel so that the boat could make its way back to Jacksonville.

Many thanks to Carnival Legend Captain Alessandro Galotto and his team for their efforts in lending a hand to their fellow mariners.”
