Two Passengers Die After Bermuda Cruise

October 28, 2011

Boston police are investigating the deaths of two passengers on a cruise ship which had just returned to the city from a visit to Bermuda.

State police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation responded to the Massachusetts city’s Black Falcon Cruise Terminal after the Norwegian Cruise Line ship docked at 6:30 a.m. this morning [Oct. 28].

Police say a 67-year-old woman travelling aboard the “Norwegian Dawn” appears to have died of natural causes and the death is not considered suspicious.

The cause of death of a 23-year-old man is unknown, but authorities say there is no indication of criminal activity.

The deaths aboard the cruise ship were not connected, Boston police said. The FBI responded because the deaths occurred outside state waters. No names were released.

Norwegian Cruise Line said the ship was returning to Boston after a seven-day cruise to Bermuda and the company is working closely with police.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to both families during this difficult time,” the company said in a statement.

    Poor tourists, my condolences. Poor Bermuda, even if there were no culpability, we just can’t seem to catch a break…

  2. It could be an accident. But it is very unusual; 2 died in a ship, one young and another old, within a journey 7 days. What happen? Must find the reason!
