Two Singaporeans, aged 61 and 75, passed away while onboard cruise ship Voyager of the Seas, which left the country on Monday and was scheduled to be in Penang on Tuesday, followed by Phuket the day after, before returning to Singapore on Friday. They died of “unrelated natural causes,” a spokesperson for operating company Royal Caribbean Cruises told CNA yesterday.

“As per our standard procedure, we have informed the respective families and we are providing them assistance during this difficult time,” the spokesperson said. “We extend our most sincere condolences to the families.”

The ship, which first sailed in 1999, houses 1,643 guest rooms and sails to destinations like Australia and New Zealand.
