Sadly, a tragedy has occurred on the Serenade of the Seas, a Royal Caribbean cruise ship. The ship is part of the cruise line’s nine-month-long Ultimate World Cruise. On February 12th, Royal Caribbean confirmed that a passenger on board had passed away. The company expressed its deepest condolences and offered assistance to the deceased passenger’s loved ones. They stated that they would not be sharing any further information at this time.
E! News reached out to Royal Caribbean for their comment but has not yet received a response. The news of the passenger’s death originally came from a TikToker named Adita, who posted a video about it on her account. However, she later deleted the video after receiving criticism for sharing sensitive information without permission from the deceased person’s family or friends. According to People, Adita mentioned that an elderly lady had passed away on board the ship and that she witnessed her body being taken out.
The Serenade of the Seas set sail on its 274-night Ultimate World Cruise back in December with tickets reportedly sold for $53,999. Despite this unfortunate incident, many passengers have continued to enjoy their time aboard the ship and share their experiences on social media platforms like Instagram and YouTube.
