Over the past few days the media has been reporting on a crew member on Royal Caribbeans newest cruise ship Quantum of the Seas of being accused of sexually abusing a passenger.

The crew member in question was working on Quantum of the Seas which has been one of the highlights of new cruise ship in 2014. The 25-year-old male worker is Karan Seechurn and he was responsible for filling up stateroom minibars. Apparently Karan had access to staterooms with a master-key.

On December 23rd the employee allegedly sneaked into one room where a female passenger was sleeping. He then allegedly sexually abused her while she was asleep. once she woke up he apparently threatened that he would burn the ship if she told anyone.

Seechurn was arrested on December 27th once Quantum of the Seas arrived back to its homeport in Bayonne, New Jersey. the employee has been charged by the FBI and could face a maximum of three years in prison along with a $250,000 fine.

According to Seechurns Facebook page he is from Centre de Flacq, Mauritius. Most of the time Cruise Hive support all the hard-working crew members but in this case obviously not. Our thoughts go out to the female passenger who was affected by this incident.
