Stranded Cruise ship gets help from US Navy.
The USS Ronald Reagan is on it's way to help stranded travelers on the Carnival Splendor cruise ship. The Ronald Reagan was on maneuvers when it was called upon to help. Ships passengers only have enough food to last through Tuesday so supplies are being airlifted to them. They will also be offered a full refund on their purchase price but some say that they will never go on a cruise again. The USS Ronald Reagan is the ship upon which my son is stationed. Imagine my surprise when I read that his ship was going to be helping. I eagerly await his return to hear how it all went. story
