FBI investigating death on Enchantment of the Seas


Royal Caribbean says the FBI is probing the death of a passenger aboard its Enchantment of the Seas cruise ship.

Enchantment of the Seas returned to Baltimore yesterday after a passenger reported his 62-year-old wife was found dead in their stateroom on Sunday.  

Royal Caribbean issued a statement saying it contacted the FBI and local police as part of standard procedures once the crew was aware of the incident.

The identity of the woman is unknown and there's no other details at this time other than the FBI is investigating the circumstances surrounding her death.

UPDATE: Here's Royal Caribbean's statement on this incident:

"We extend our most sincere and heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of the 64-year-old female guest from the United States who died while onboard Enchantment of the Seas. On March 24, 2013, the guest was found by her husband deceased in their cabin.

As is our standard procedure, both the FBI and local law enforcement were notified. The FBI responded to the ship when it arrived in Baltimore, Maryland, on Monday, March 25. A member of our Care Team is providing support and assistance to her family.  

Enchantment of the Seas concluded its seven-night sailing in Baltimore, on March 25, 2013. The sailing included port calls to Port Canaveral, Florida; Nassau and CocoCay, Bahamas."
