The company expressed its support to the deceased passenger’s loved ones and stated that they would not be sharing any further information at this time.
E! News reached out to Royal Caribbean for their comment, but have not yet received a response.

The Serenade of the Seas set sail on its 274-night Ultimate World Cruise back in December with tickets sold for $53,999. Despite this unfortunate event, the cruise became a viral sensation among travelers around the world.
