Disappearance of Royal Caribbean Crew Member Adriana Morales de Florencio

There remains no leads, which have been publicly discussed to date, regarding the whereabouts of Royal Caribbean crew member Adriana Morales de Florencio. We first mentioned her disappearance on April 20, 2017. 

Adriana was reported missing after the cruise ship she worked on, the Navigator of the Seas, stopped in the port of Kralendijk, Bonaire last week.

Recent articles say that Adriana's family members have obtained passports to travel from Mexico to Panama by air and, then, they will take a boat to reach Bonaire to meet the authorities, investigators and cruise line representatives. 

The police in Bonaire have released a poster with Adriana's information, which you can see below. 

If you have relevant information, please contact the police.

Adriana Morales de Florencio - Royal Caribbean Crew Member Missing in BonnaireNewspapers in Bonaire are reporting that the police in that country are looking for a crew member employed by Royal Caribbean on the Navigator of the Seas who did not return to the cruise ship after going ashore in the port of Kralendijk two days ago.

Mexican national Adriana Morales de Florencio, reportedly left the Royal Caribbean cruise ship on Thursday, April 20th, around noon. But she did not return before the cruise ship left the harbor of Kralendijk, according to the BES Reporter

The Notisia ING Facebook page has several photographs posted of the missing young woman. 

According to police information, Ms. Morales was born in 1993; she was was wearing a black sleeveless blouse, short cut-off jeans and black shoes.

The young woman reportedly was in the middle of her second contract; she worked both contracts on the Navigator.

The majority of people missing under these type of circumstances are passengers who eventually turn up.  It is unusual for a crew member not to return to their job on a cruise ship. It is less than clear what, if anything, the cruise line is doing to search for her.

Passenger Dies Following Fall While Disembarking Princess Cruise Ship in Bonaire

Emerald Princess - Passenger DeathA newspaper in Connecticut is reporting that a 59 year old passenger fell while disembarking a Princess cruise ship in a Caribbean port and injured his neck.  After being flown by air ambulance to Miami, the passengers died due to complications during surgery.

The incident occurred on December 14, 2010, when Timothy Scheibel sailed with his wife to the island of Bonaire on a cruise ship operated by Princess Cruises of Santa Clarita, California.  Although the name of the cruise ship is not revealed, it appears that the Scheibels were sailing aboard the Emerald Princess.

This is the third death this week involving passengers falling on or from cruise ships, one yesterday involving the MSC Orchestra and one last weekend involving the Sea Princess.

The Scheibels resided in a retirement / golf community in central Florida called "The Villages," having relocated from Connecticut to Florida in 2004.  Mr. Scheibel worked as a financial adviser. The cruise was to celebrate Mr. Scheibels' 60th birthday.

December 23, 2010 Update:

We received a comment (below) from Princess Cruises indicating that the passenger fell "ashore in Bonaire," not while disembarking the cruise ship.  The story we linked to above reports that the accident occurred "while stepping off a cruise ship . . . while the ship was docked at the island of Bonaire . . . "   We apologize for the erroneous information if the accident occurred ashore as Princess clarifies.
