Cruise Hive is sad to report that a passenger has apparently died on the Norwegian Getaway on Friday. We must mention that the cruise line has not yet confirmed this but Cruise Hive has been informed of the tragic event by a crew member working for the company.

According to the source who contacted us the guest was male and cruising on the Breakaway class ship. The passenger jumped from one of the top decks and ended up hitting deck 8 down below. He sadly died, our hearts go out to the passengers family and loved ones during this terrible time.

The crew member told Cruise Hive “he jumped from the last deck and landed on deck 8 in front of the HR and the senior doctor, they were on the deck together on break…the FBI is on board of the getaway.”

The crew member also said staff who were working at the ships front desk got in serious trouble for not answering a 911 call. He said “no one answered the 911 called nor logged the previous called recieved…it has been chaos all day today, the guest died.”

The 145,650 gross ton ship is sailing a 7-day western Caribbean cruise which departed Miami, Florida on March 6. The second Breakaway class ship is expected back at its homeport on March 13.

Cruise Hive will update this post once we hear back from NCL.
