Norwegian Pearl Crew Member Missing Victoria BC Canada – Norwegian Pearl crew member Lloyd Takana, 36, has been reported missing by Norwegian Cruise Line. Missing is defined as “jumped ship”, meaning he willingly left the ship while it was in port at Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, and never returned before the cruise ship departed the port.
Takana disembarked Norwegian Pearl just before midnight on June 2, 2018. He was granted a shore pass and left the Norwegian Pearl cruise ship on June 2.
Norwegian Pearl embarked Seattle, Washington on Sunday, June 3, 2018 at 1600 hours for a 7-night Alaska cruise. Norwegian Pearl called at Juneau, Skagway, Glacier Bay Park and Ketchikan before calling at Victoria. Then, Norwegian Pearl returned to Seattle on Sunday, June 3.
The city has a population of 85,792, while the metropolitan area of Greater Victoria has a population of 383,360, making it the 15th most populous Canadian metropolitan area. So, it would be fairly easy to blend into the local population.
