FBI Investigating ‘Suspicious’ Death of Woman on Cruise Ship, reveals a Travel Plus news source.
Death of a woman on a Carnival Cruise Line ship
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has officially launched an investigation into the “suspicious” death of a woman on a Carnival Cruise Line ship in February.
According to CBS News, crew members working on Carnival Sunshine on February 27 responded to reports of an unresponsive female passenger as the vessel sailed from Charleston, South Carolina, to Nassau, Bahamas.
Medical staff onboard worked to revive the woman, but she was pronounced dead on the ship, according to the FBI Columbia field office. Upon returning to Charleston on March 4, FBI officials searched the deceased passenger’s room for evidence.
FBI representatives said they have not disclosed the passenger’s identity or the cause of death, as the case remains under investigation. As for the cruise line, a Carnival representative said it is “fully cooperating” with authorities.
Debarked in Nassau
“Both the deceased and her husband were debarked in Nassau and Bahamian authorities have already investigated the circumstances and are conducting an autopsy,” the cruise line told CBS.
Earlier this week, Carnival announced it would expand its offerings in Galveston, Texas, with the addition of a fourth cruise ship in the Carnival Miracle.
The 2,200-guest vessel will join Carnival Breeze, Carnival Dream and the new Excel-Class Carnival Jubilee in the Port of Galveston and offer longer sailings of nine, 10, 11 and even 12 days beginning in the fall of 2024 and continuing through spring 2025.
In addition, the cruise line celebrated National Margarita Day by announcing that premium Santo Tequilas from beloved celebrity chef Guy Fieri and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Sammy Hagar are now available to guests fleetwide.
