Royal Caribbean’s ALLURE OF THE SEAS picked up nine Cubans in a raft on Saturday while on its way back to Port Everglades, FL.

Crew spotted the makeshift raft and yellow tarp in waters off the northern tip of Cuba.

The eight men and one woman onboard were given food and medical treatment onboard the cruise ship before the U.S. Coast Guard took them into custody.

Cubans picked up at sea are usually returned back to Cuba.
