For the second time in two months, a Royal Caribbean shipped rescued a group of people on a raft adrift in the ocean.  Oasis of the Seas came across seven people suspected to be Cubans on a raft while Oasis was on its way back to Port Everglades.

The rafters were spotted by passengers at 3pm on Friday, who quickly notified the ship's Captain and the ship engaged in a rescue.

In a statement by Royal Caribbean, the group consisted of six men and one woman.

Oasis contacted the United States Coast Guard who took the rafters into their custody.

Back in May, Allure of the Seas rescued a group of Cuban rafters as well.
