Two passengers died aboard a Royal Caribbean cruise ship this week, both reportedly due to natural causes.
One of the deceased was a 62-year-old man from New Jersey. Joseph M. Ambrussi was sailing on the Royal Caribbean Anthem of the Seas from Bayonne, New Jersey to San Juan Puerto Rico when he died of natural causes on Tuesday. He was traveling with his wife at the time of his death.
Another man, a 55-year-old pharmacist from Pennsylvania, was also traveling on the same ship and died a day later. William A. Forsytte was traveling with his wife and reportedly died of natural causes as well.
Officials have not indicated that there is any link between the two men.
This double tragedy marks the latest in what has been a difficult year for the Anthem of the Seas. In July, an 8-year-old boy nearly drowned aboard the ship, and died shortly after from the injuries he suffered. Earlier in the year, in February, the ship was damaged after sailing through a serious storm with thousands of passengers aboard.
