It does seem odd that nobody encountered this couple for a few days.This looks to me like maybe a suicide or murder suicide sure seems like odd circumstances. Their cabin door was double locked from inside which correct me if wrong would be impossible to do from outside the cabin.
The report does say that the door was double-locked, from the inside, so perhaps it was dead-bolted, and a passkey wouldn't have worked.
That being said, with passengers of such advanced age, you'd think someone would do whatever it took, including breaking down the door, or trying to enter from the balcony, to ensure they were alive and well.
