Several cruise passengers have stated that a passenger died aboard the Carnival Dream on September 20 2013.
Cruise passengers indicate that they got into one of the hot tubs on the cruise ship Friday evening and realized that another passenger, a man, was under the water. The man reportedly was removed from the tub, and the medical staff was notified and arrived at the scene. They tried to resuscitate the man for a period of time but were unsuccessful in doing so. The incident apparently happened around 7:45 P.M. Friday evening.
A passenger on the ship contacted us and inquired whether we have other information about this incident. We contacted Carnival and informed them of what we leaned and sought a comment from the cruise line.
Today at noon, Carnival provided the following statement:
"September 22, 2013 - 12 noon
On Friday evening, while the Carnival Dream was en route to its homeport of Port Canaveral, Fla., the shipboard medical staff was notified that a 42-year-old male guest was experiencing a medical emergency. The medical staff responded to the location, one of the ship's Lanai areas, and administered emergency aid but, tragically, the guest passed away.
Carnival's CARE Team is providing assistance and support to the guest's family.
Our heartfelt sympathies go out to the guest's family and our thoughts and prayers are with them during this difficult time.
Carnival Dream operates seven-day cruises from Port Canaveral."
