MSC Cruises reported that a Mexican guest onboard MSC Divina went overboard on 18 June at approximately 5pm, when the ship was sailing in Brazilian waters between Fortaleza and Recife.

 

MSC Divina’s crew immediately raised the alarm while the Master alerted the Brazilian authorities to the need to launch the appropriate procedures and to ask for assistance while proceeding with search and rescue measures.

The guest remains missing, but MSC Cruises continues to offer all possible cooperation and support to the competent authorities.

The Brazilian Navy has assumed full control of the search effort and allowed MSC Divina to continue its itinerary.
