The FBI has said it is looking into the “suspicious death” of a woman who was a passenger on the Carnival Sunshine on a recent trip to the Bahamas.
The woman, who has not been officially recognized, died on the Feb. 27 cruise leaving Charleston, South Carolina, according to the Columbia field office.
The FBI stated that when the medical professionals and other crew members aboard the Carnival Sunshine learned that a passenger was unresponsive, they quickly began CPR. Unfortunately, the individual was pronounced dead on board.
The FBI “responded to process the passenger’s room” after the ship arrived back in Charleston on March 4.

“This occurrence was unique, and there was no threat to any other passengers before or after the passenger was found deceased,” the FBI added.
For its part, Carnival Cruise Line assured FOX Business that it is helping the FBI with its probe.
Company officials added, “Bahamian authorities have already investigated the facts and are conducting an autopsy.” The deceased woman and her husband disembarked in Nassau.
While Carnival has warned rowdy spring breakers that they will be hit with $500 penalties if they cause trouble, one of the ship’s 3,000 passengers has already died.
