With deepest regret and sadness we share the news of the discovery of the dead body of Royal Caribbean crew member Adriana Morales de Florencio. Today – April 30 – 10 days after Adriana was reported missing on the Island of Bonaire, the body of the 24-year-old Royal Caribbean crew member was found buried on a beach. The local newspaper BES Reporter, as well as the radio station Live99 FM, report the discovery of Adriana’s body buried on the coast of Playa Grande, Bonaire. This corresponds to Adriana Morales de Florencio, native of Atlixco, Puebla, Mexico.

After reviewing the CCTV footage, police in Bonaire arrested the suspect who was seen in a video together with Adriana only moments before she left the ship. The male, initials R.S., was questioned by the police and led them to the scene where the body was buried.

Adriana worked on her second contract as a part of the crew aboard the Royal Caribbean cruise ship Navigator of the Seas. We (i.e., the founders and operators of this web portal) as prior crew members empathize with the loss, hardship, pain and the sorrow of all who knew her.

Important Message to all Crew

It is highly encouraged and recommended that when departing the ships in one of the port-of-calls to always be accompanied by a trusted person so-called “travel buddy.”  Safety is important off the ships as much at it is aboard the ships. It is recommended that some research of the port-of-call visited is done prior to departing the ship and ensure to avoid suspicious locations. Furthermore, our experience with working on ships and traveling the many ports-of-call in the world have taught us to always encourage novice crew members to maintain near locals and areas frequented by tourists, as well as avoid offers by taxi drivers and guides of private tour experiences. Working aboard the many cruise ships all over the world can be a fun experience with utilizing little safety skills as a loss of a crew member is not only a loss for the family, friends, and crew members who knew them, but also for the broader crew community whose perceptual idea of safety and mobility is overshadowed with fear.

At the web link below is a video released by the police showing Adriana with the suspect.
