Nightmare at Sea: Bartender’s Reign of Terror on Margaritaville Cruise Ship

Aboard the Margaritaville at Sea cruise ship, a West Virginia woman, identified only as Jane Doe, has come forward with a harrowing tale of sexual assault and terror. Allegedly, a bartender named Hoobesh Dookhy, who worked on the ship, snuck into her cabin in the dead of night, leaving her pregnant and ultimately forcing her to undergo an abortion.

What makes this case even more disturbing is that Jane Doe is not the only victim. Her cabin mate, H.B., also fell prey to the same bartender’s heinous acts on that fateful night. Both women claim that Dookhy used his position to gain access to their room by swiping their room key while they were asleep.

The night began innocently enough, with Doe and H.B. enjoying drinks at the ship’s bar. Little did they know that charging their beverages to their cabin number would provide the crewmembers staffing the bar with access to their shared cabin number and room key. Unbeknownst to them, this would set the stage for the nightmare that was about to unfold.

After retiring to their cabin for the night, both women fell into a deep slumber. It was during this vulnerable state that Dookhy allegedly entered their shared cabin and raped Jane Doe. The lawsuit filed against the Classica cruise line states that as a result of this horrific assault, Jane Doe became pregnant and was forced to terminate the pregnancy, which led to serious complications.

Jane Doe’s ordeal did not end there. She woke up in the midst of the assault and demanded that the bartender leave. However, it is alleged that Dookhy then turned his attention to her cabin mate, H.B., and subjected her to a similar attack. The evidence against Dookhy is damning, with investigators discovering the women’s room key in his work vest and a disturbing photo on his cellphone showing him next to H.B. as she lay naked and asleep.

Seeking justice, Jane Doe has filed a federal lawsuit against the Classica cruise line, demanding a jury trial and $75,000 in damages for the sustained disability and the inability to lead a normal life. Margaritaville at Sea Paradise has declined to comment on the matter.

Spencer Aronfeld, Jane Doe’s attorney, revealed that she initially came forward as a witness in the case involving her cabin mate. However, after Dookhy’s conviction, she decided to file her own lawsuit, highlighting the traumatic impact the assault had on her life. Aronfeld stated that Jane Doe plans to testify that she had not been sexually active with her husband before or after the alleged rape.

As the sentencing hearing for Hoobesh Dookhy approaches, the victims hope for a just outcome. Dookhy faces up to two years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. The Margaritaville at Sea cruise ship, once a haven of relaxation and enjoyment, has now become the backdrop for a terrifying tale of abuse and betrayal.
