Heard about that... sad indeed... I think people "pass on" more often than we would think on cruise ships... They even have a "cooler" for just that on the ship (*shudders*)... Most of them are from those that have illness already, heart-attack, etc., the rare ones are the ones that "accidentally" fall overboard (how exactly that happens, I have no clue...)

A 26-year-old woman died on a Carnival cruise ship, and authorities are trying to determine whether a rare immune system disease contributed to her death.
Angela M. McDonald, of Palm Bay, stopped breathing after she sat down to eat a late dinner with her family on the ship, said her mother, Dawn Roberts. Efforts to resuscitate McDonald were unsuccessful.
McDonald suffered from scleroderma, a disease that causes the body's immune system to attack its own tissues.
I am a cruising addict... and have never regretted it for one moment.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do
than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor.
