During a ceremony aboard Carnival Fascination yesterday, Captain Candeloro Donato recognized the heroic efforts of Randolph Donovan and Kashief Hamilton, two local entertainers who rescued a guest in a wheelchair who accidently fell in the water on the St. Thomas pier last Monday.  St. Thomas officials were also on board to pay tribute to these two selfless gentlemen who immediately jumped into the water and, with the assistance of members of Carnival’s security team, were able to return the guest ashore.  The guest was seen by the Carnival Fascination’s medical team and did not sustain injuries.  On behalf of the entire Carnival family, our most sincere thanks and appreciation to these individuals for their incredible efforts in assisting this guest.
