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

Unfortunately, the guest remains missing, but MSC Cruises continues to offer all possible cooperation and support to the competent authorities,” the company said.

Guests aboard MSC Divina, which is currently under private charter, have been informed.

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