A passenger has died on the Serenade of the Seas, a Royal Caribbean ship that is currently on a nine-month “Ultimate World Cruise”. The cruise line is supporting the deceased passenger’s loved ones and keeping details of this event private; the passenger’s name and the circumstances of their death have not been released.
On December 10th last year, the luxurious Serenade of the Seas departed from Miami to start a 274-night, seven-continent voyage. The cruise would stop at 60 countries and 11 world wonders, and it has already travelled through Mexico, the Caribbean, Brazil, Peru and Ecuador on its South America leg last month. On Sunday, the Asia Pacific leg of the voyage began that will see the ship pass through Hawaii, Polynesia and Australia. Royal Caribbean didn’t provide specifics, but they are “providing support and assistance to the guest’s loved ones at this time,” a spokesperson’s statement said.
