Bahamas police investigating deaths of 2 crew members on different cruise ships
Very little seems to be known so far, but multiple new sites are reporting that 2 crew members have been found dead, apparently separate accidents on separate cruise ships (or in ports of call). Details are few at this point and even speculative news is relatively quiet.
Here is the report:
From ABC News and the Associated Press: Bahamian authorities are investigating the deaths of two crew members on separate cruise ships that were in the islands’ waters.
Police have disclosed few specifics, saying only that they are “actively investigating these incidents to determine the exact cause of death.”
A statement from the Royal Bahamas Police Force says a male crew member was found dead early Sunday aboard a cruise ship anchored at Castaway Cay, a private island that serves as an exclusive port for Disney Cruise Line vessels. Police say the lifeless body of a female crew member was found aboard another cruise line’s vessel early Monday as it passed through Bahamian waters.
Neither ship was identified. Police spokeswoman Terecita Pinder did not immediately respond to calls or an email seeking comment Monday.
Castaway Cay is Disney Cruise Lines exclusive island for guests on Disney Cruise Line Bahamian and Caribbean cruise vacations. Castaway Cay offers tropical leisure activities, such as snorkeling, boating, swimming and sunbathing.
