Authorities are reporting that an unidentified 37 year old woman has been reported missing from a Carnival Cruise Line ship that was going on a 4 day cruise from Key West, FL to Mexico.
The Miami-based cruise line said relatives last saw the woman Saturday night, but did not report her missing until Monday, when the ship returned to Miami. FBI spokeswoman Judy Orihuela said, however, that she was not aware of any delay in reporting the disappearance.
What is going on during these cruises? This now makes 3 people that have gone missing in 5 months aboard a ship this year. Carnival Cruise is stating that they do not believe foul play was involved in the disappearance on the “Imagination”. The latest in a line on non-foul play missing persons.

Unidentified 37 year old
Cruise passenger missing; foul play not suspected
Her family last saw her in her room at 1:30 a.m. Sunday, when the ship was at sea.
“We do not suspect foul play,” FBI spokeswoman Judy Orihuela said.
Such incidents have drawn heightened attention since the unsolved disappearance last summer of George Smith IV from a Royal Caribbean International ship. Smith’s widely publicized case led to congressional hearings on how cruise lines handle the investigation and reporting of shipboard crimes.
In a statement, Carnival said the Ohio woman had been traveling with family members, who last saw her early in the morning on Sunday, several hours after the ship had sailed from Calica, Mexico, which is near Playa del Carmen.
Coast Guard spokesman Dana Warr said Monday that there were no planes or vessels launched to search for the woman because it had been nearly 36 hours since anyone had last seen her.
“We did notify the Mexican Rescue Coordination Center,” Warr said, and sent a radio message to mariners in the area where Imagination sailed Sunday.
The message asked fishing, cargo and other vessels to call the Coast Guard if they see anything unusual. The area is about 400 miles from Miami, Warr said.
