“We are saddened by the tragic loss of our crew member and extend our deepest sympathies to his family and loved ones. We have a care team is in place to provide support and assistance to the family during this difficult time. On Sunday afternoon while Rhapsody of the Seas was in Dubrovnik port, ship personnel were alerted to the incident and immediately deployed lifeboats, initiated recovery procedures, and alerted local authorities. We will continue to assist authorities in their investigation.”,  a Royal Caribbean spokesperson stated.

This case and two other deaths aboard Royal Caribbean cruise ships this summer have been added to the Cruise Ship Deaths database.
