We, the crew members are shocked from this gruesome murder of one of our own colleagues. Traveling the world in some of the most beautiful places we can’t imagine that something like this can happen. Unfortunately, it did, and it happens in one of the remote, peaceful places, the island of Bonaire. Therefore I share this message with all crew members: Don’t trust anyone in the port. Don’t take a taxi if you are alone. When you visit a port always travel in a group with trusted fellow crew members, NEVER alone. The world is a dangerous place and bad people are everywhere, even on small peaceful islands. To Morales family: We share your sadness, sorrow, and pain that you will forever carry in your hearts from the loss of your daughter. No child deserves such faith. God give you strength for the loss of you angel.

Rest in Peace Adriana.
