We have been contacted by a half-dozen passengers from the Carnival Dream ship sailing out of New Orleans. They have inquired about the death last week of a 30 year-old man (passenger) sailing with his wife and other couples.
He apparently fell from his cabin’s balcony and landed on an exterior deck that runs above the lifeboats (deck 5 I believe). This occurred on Tuesday, January 20th.
The cruise ship called on Cozumel on Tuesday, Grand Cayman on Wednesday and Montego Bay on Thursday.
The FBI was supposed to board on Sunday when the ship returned to New Orleans. There have been no reports we know of foul play.
He is from Missouri. Carnival flew his wife home during the cruise.
