Knut Kloster, Founder of Norwegian Cruise Line Dies Aged 91

Knut Kloster, a legend in the cruise industry and who co-founded Norwegian Cruise Line has sadly died at the age of 91.

We are sad to report that a cruise ship passenger from Royal Princess has died during a snorkelling tour in Antigua.

Local news is reporting that 64-year-old Martin Brutosky from New York died while snorkelling by Bird Island on Saturday, December 3. He was on a tour while the large Princess Cruise ship was making a port of call to the Caribbean island of Antigua.

According to the site after ten minutes in the water the man stopped moving and his wife brought him to the top and called for help. A local Sting Ray City boat came to hep and provided CPR. He was then taken for further medical attention and finally arrived at Mount St. John’s Medical Centre but was pronounced dead on arrival. This must have been a terrible for his wife who was also a passenger from the cruise ship. We send our deepest condolences to her and their family. No foul play was involved and it is believed that he suffered from high blood pressure.

Royal Princess is one of the biggest ships in the fleet and is sailing a 15-day Caribbean cruise which departed Port Everglades, Florida on November 26. The ship is only half way through its itinerary and schedule to arrive back at its home port on December 10. The vessel is 142,700 gross tons and can carry over 3,500 guests at double occupancy.
