Gerson is an employee of Sunline Energy in San Diego. According to Frank’s Facebook page, she is a life coach and yoga instructor based in La Jolla, California.

Authorities in Jamaica have sent out a news alert with photographs of the couple taken by the cruise company.

"While on board, they asked to debark the ship in Jamaica. The ship team assisted them with this request and were escorted to immigration," Martinez said.
