It looks like the cruise ship industry is facing more negative publicity with a recent death of a passenger aboard a Carnival Fantasy ship. A few weeks ago another luxury cruise ship crashed in Italy and now they have yet another cruise related catastrophe to deal with.
Authorities are investigating the death of a passenger who fell from an upper deck to a lower deck while the cruise ship was docked in the Bahamas.
The 26-year-old victim, whose identity was not released, fell from one of the upper levels of the ship’s atrium to the lobby level late Friday night, Carnival Cruise Lines said in a statement Saturday. The ship was docked in Nassau at the time.
Bahamas police said the man was from South Carolina and that initial reports indicate he may have jumped. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
