Reading other reports the children were 9 & 12





"Passenger Brady Forbes told MailOnline Travel that the children - a boy aged around 9 and a girl aged around 12 - were left alone on the 4,000-passenger ship when it disembarked without their parents on 21 April.



He said: ‘The kids and dad were on board the ship at the right time, but the mom was not on the ship yet.



‘After that, the husband went out to look for the wife and the ship gave them more time than normal.



‘They found the wife but obviously not in time as the ship sailed away.



'Both husband and wife were not able to make the ship in time after they missed it."


Looks like the Captain/Officer who gave permission to hubby to go and look might be at fault here. They left the kid parent less till they caught the ship up again. (Opinion only)

Before sailing the crew made sure that the children although 'parentless'; were in fact in the care of their uncle and his family. The children, a boy and a girl,  according to reports were aged 9 years and 12 years respectively.
