On March 27, 2018, MSC Cruises reported to the police in the Cayman Islands that a crew member was missing after she failed to re-board the MSC Opera cruise ship before its departure from George Town. We mentioned the incident on March 28th, after the popular Crew Center reported the incident.
According to the Cayman News Service, the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service were told by the MSC cruise ship on March 27th about the missing woman. The crew member was identified as 34 year old Yusmaidys Ortiz Perez.
Today, the Caymans’ newspaper reported that MSC Cruises reported Ms. Perez missing “four days after the MSC Opera departed from the Cayman Islands.” The MSC Opera had arrived in Grand Cayman on Friday, March 23rd and departed the same day without the crew member.
The police in Grand Cayman state that Ms. Perez was found in good health in West Bay.
West Bay is a residential district located on the west side of Grand Cayman Island, located north of the island’s popular Seven Mile Beach.
It’s a good development that the woman has been located, although it is troubling that the cruise ship personnel delayed four days before reporting that she did not return to the ship before it left the country.
