MIAMI - Five Jamaicans who have been drifting on a small boat in the Caribbean for three weeks are being rescued by a cruise ship.

A spokeswoman for Princess Cruise Lines says the Island Princess ship will bring the group on board. The spokeswoman did not immediately know their condition or ages.

The Island Princess left Fort Lauderdale a week ago and is scheduled to arrive Tuesday in Ocho Rios, Jamaica.

The captain of the ship notified passengers about the small boat earlier Monday on the loudspeaker.
