A crew member aboard the Norwegian Dawn has been arrested on Friday while attempting to smuggle cocaine aboard the cruise ship, according to Teledifusora Insular TV station.

Norwegian Dawn was docked in Roatan.

The NCL employee, identified as 35-year-old Keneth Antonio Salas Taylor, a galley worker from Nicaragua, has tired to board the vessel with a package of cocaine that was hidden under his clothes. Norwegian Dawn security discovered the drugs and the incident was reported to the national police, who arrested Taylor. 

Last month, 5 NCL crew members on Norwegian Sun were arrested in Tampa, Florida when the ship returned from Roatan where they had picked up the 7 kilos cocaine. These men were also galley workers.
