Several people informed me that there has been a death aboard the Disney Dream.
An officer was reportedly discovered dead on the cruise ship yesterday. The officer reportedly was discovered hanging, in what I am told is an apparent suicide. His body was located in an air conditioning room reportedly on deck seven.
The body of the Disney officer was reportedly removed from the cruise ship in the Bahamas.
The cruise ship was last in Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island in the Bahamas. It returned to Port Canaveral and is now heading back to Nassau.
The Dream is registered in Nassau Bahamas. Any investigation will be conducted by the Bahamas Maritime Authority.
We made an inquiry to Disney Cruise Line but it has not responded.
