Local Police said:

“At 1:40pm on August 20, 2016, police received a report of a death onboard the cruise ship, Royal Caribbean Grandeur of the Seas which was berthed at Heritage Wharf in Dockyard.

“It was reported that the 45-year-old male American national was found dead in his cabin. His death was certified by the ships’ doctor.
