The investigation into the cruise ship death is ongoing. The woman from Virginia is scheduled to have an autopsy this week in order to determine the cause of death. The FBI investigators did not release any information as to the condition of the body. It is unknown if the woman sustained any trauma prior to her death.
The cruise ship belonged to the Royal Caribbean company and was called "Enchantment of the Seas."
The cruise ship industry has been taking its share of knocks lately. Ships have been capsizing and breaking down all over the world. The death of the woman from Virginia is not the only recent recorded cruise ship death.
In February 2013, 5 crew members from Thomson Cruises in Spain's Canary Islands were killed during a safety drill. Mindy Jordan was going on a Mother's Day cruise with her family in 2008 when she fell overboard. Jordan was on board a Norwegian Dawn cruise ship.
Also, in February 2013, a passenger onboard a Carnival Miracle cruise ship was found dead. An investigation into that death led officials to believe alcohol played a role.
Another Carnival cruise ship suffered a breakdown In February 2013 when an engine fire crippled ship setting it adrift in the Golf of Mexico.
Despite the possible danger, people still love taking cruises and, more often then not, cruises are completely safe.
