A cruise ship crew member has been charged in federal court with molesting a minor.

Cruise ship youth counselor Cris John Pentinio Castor was charged with abusive sexual contact with a minor.

He has admitted the charge and of previously molesting at least three other children.

The offence took place last month aboard the Celebrity Silhouette in the youth center.

The victim was a six-year old girl.

Castor ‘admitted to the inappropriate sexual touching of other minor children that were in his care at the Youth Center, on multiple occasions,” the affidavit said.

Celebrity Cruises said it reported the incident to law enforcement and fired Castor.

According to Department of Transportation data, there were 87 alleged sexual assaults reported on cruise ships in 2022.
