Roberge said she was motivated by her addiction to Instagram, the Post reported.
Co-defendant Isabelle Lagace, 30, a former porn star, traveled with Roberge and the pair often posted bikini-clad photos of themselves with tropical backdrops, the report said.
The two were reportedly given first-class cruise tickets worth $20,000, plus about $5,000 in spending money to smuggle the 200 pounds of cocaine.
