Crew Member Dies On Board MSC Orchestra

Mar 25, 2022

The crew aboard the cruise ship MSC Orchestra are devastated after the death of one of their colleague. The tragic event reportedly took place yesterday in the crew areas after the crew member sustained severe injury, our source said.

There was a medical emergency announcement on the ship's PA system and the medical staff rushed to help the crew member. Unfortunately, they couldn’t save the crew member. 

The crew member is a South African woman who was working in the crew mess. Our source said that this was her first contract.

MSC Orchestra has resumed cruises to South Africa in January after pausing operations for a month. The ship is sailing 3- and 4-night voyages from Durban.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the crew member’s family, friends, and fellow shipmates.
